The recent Legislative Auditor's report on hiring practices has some leveling the charge of "cronyism" (has a nice, government ring to it, doesn't it?). Dictionary.com defines "cronyism" as follows:
Favoritism shown to old friends without regard for their qualifications.
Since every hire I've made has been specifically with regard to qualifications for the job, this word does not apply. I'm committed, as I always have been, to finding the best person for the job. If you've got questions about the report , or anything else, drop me a line. I don't bite.
