Mr. Dunn's arrogance continues to astound me! He appears to believe the county commission is a one man show.

Please forgive me for gloating but I can't resist. Back in January, when the County Commission spent the original $48,000 without it being an agenda item, my comment about this program was 'In a year we won't even be able to find the receipts'. This type of program has been looted here and all over the state many times over. I distinctly remember about 30 years when 'Tall Paul' was scrambling to invent a similar paper trail. Nothing ever changes.

It is a shame that the kids at WVU-P and our community will both lose out on this opportunity because of the usual "playing politics."

Mr. Dunn is a good person. Unfortunately, made a bad decision on this. But I think he is 100% honest and caring.

If this was a regular employee instead of an elected official he would have been fired, remember this at election time.

Dunn hiring someone from his dental practice to do this job. sounds fishy to me. I guess he thinks he can do whatever he wants. Maybe he'll run for President and be the next King in Washington.
