No to Lame Duck Appointments

It has come to my attention that a new nominee for the Planning Board is working through the approval process before the election. Considering that four out of the five County Council members are lame ducks, we are less than a month from an election, and whoever is appointed to the Planning Board will be serving until mid-2008 I think that it would be unconscionable for the lame duck council to approve the appointment of a new member. Let the voters through their selection of the next County Executive and County Council determine what the make up of the Planning Board will be.
