Up and running

Allen County Recorder John McGauley is not wasting any time in getting his campaign for commissioner underway.

McGauley on Monday unveiled his campaign’s website: johnmcgauley.com. The site touts his accomplishments as recorder and provides a background on the candidate.

It also offers some sharp criticism for the current state of county government and some pretty dramatic changes he would like to implement.

McGauley writes he will examine consolidating “fleet maintenance, purchasing, human resources, public safety and transportation (street and highway) departments and any other support functions shared between Allen County, the City of Fort Wayne and our community’s other municipalities.”

He also wrote he supports eliminating “the dysfunctional three-member Board of Commissioners arrangement” and creating a single executive for the county. He also supports prohibiting county employees from serving on the county council. Those issues should be enough to start a good debate with Commissioner Nelson Peters.

Peters previously said he will seek a third term, although he will have a formal announcement closer to Jan. 1.
