The only way Ravalli is going to be able to get rid of their incompetent and power abusing commissioners is if some people step up and run against them! I was living in Ravalli during the last election and it was heartbreaking to stand in the ballot box and see that there was only one option for all but one office in my region. The voters don't have a choice other than checking the box for the incumbent or writing a random name next to the write in box. And that one other person that tried to run against an incumbent didn't get any support from the local democrat party after they asked her to run for them, so of course no one wants to take a serious run at kicking these jerks out of office, no matter how disgusted the majority is with them.
It's intentional ignorance so that she can push her own agenda without feeling guilty about how contradictory and medieval it is. There's no democracy in Ravalli county.
