McIntyre: Records request is about clearing up a blurry picture

Ouray County Plaindealer: In this business we ask a lot of questions.

It’s kind of our job.

Sometimes we ask questions that don’t lead to clear answers, and that means we keep digging. At first we might have a blurry idea of what might be happening, but as we learn more and verify what is true, that picture comes into focus.

I still have a somewhat blurry picture of what happened leading up to a bizarre meeting at the beginning of January, in which County Administrator Connie Hunt started a joint policy meeting with elected officials from the town, county and city by telling them she was curtailing the hours of the two people who have led the local response to COVID-19.

When pressed for more details, Hunt shut down the conversation by calling the situation “a county personnel issue.”
