People would be amazed at how much money comes into this county each month just due to Doug's efforts." Commissioner Jeanne Krueger stated, "When we discussed this before, Doug said any other jobs we could add in to make his position full time he would do. If anyone thinks I don't care about this, they're wrong. We just have to have the parts put together before it's made a full time job." "With this kind of support, how could we not consider it?" asked Commissioner Bruce Swigerd. "I've got many good friends that are veter- ans and I've gotten many good words about Doug; lots and lots of calls." Following further discussion on the matter, the board voted 5-0 to make the position full time, effective Feb. 1, 1999.
