Opinion: Ouray County’s hiring process is pure magic

Montrose Press: Kudos to the Ouray County Plaindealer for taking the Ouray County Commissioners to the woodshed in how they seemingly botched the recent hiring of county attorney.

It’s not the hire himself, Leo Caselli, that was botched. It was the hiring process, the complete lack of transparency in which it was done and the subsequent berating by a few of the commissioners when the Plaindealer had the nerve to insist the process didn’t follow Colorado Sunshine laws.

The process of the hiring and whittling down of candidates is supposed to occur out in the open, with candidate names given and a finalist announced 14 days prior to hiring.
