Ben Arnold: Agrees with Marsha Walker on nepotism policies

Ben Arnold writes:
I also agree with Marsha Walker and Billy Fudge on the need for policies on nepotism. The added complexity, especially for a small community like ours with many interconnected families, would be well worth the effort. We do this in my business. Any job application must declare any relationship and then rearrangements may be made or the person may not be hired. We can do the same on contracts.

We also need policies on other issues, such as the conduct of elections. Yes, we have the laws but policies force someone to reduce these to specific actions for instructions, especially useful at times of personnel turnover. - Ben Arnold
