Questions about county exec search

Dear Editor,
Mr. Rob Namowicz was spot on with the Democrat bipartisanship in his letter to the editor (“County exec search,” Aug. 21).
As a private citizen, I added my name to the list as an opportunity to see how government works in Oakland County.
Mr. Namowicz had great insight on the process, but adding, Mr. L. Brooks Patterson was buried and the Democrats added the mayor of Ferndale as their solution for a county executive replacement; a 30-day process was completed in four days.
With an understanding of the 14th Amendment and the public employee selection process, the county must follow due process in the executive transition. Having submitted an interview request, I completed an implied contract to be interviewed.
Well, that didn’t happen and I’ve been very successful in private business and a great candidate for the position. Public employers that deny eligible employees their due process risk being sued.
I’ll leave you with this, Proverbs 6: There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: “haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,” “a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil,” and “a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.”
