The job of county warden

Reading through Danielle Belec’s articles in the Pontiac Journal left me with these thoughts: There’s no vetting process for candidates applying/vying for the warden’s position. There’s also no job description and no tangible qualification requirements.

The position is not part of a structural MRC hierarchy as I understand it, yet the warden is the primary spokesperson for the MRC? This begs another question – where does this leave the Director General of the MRC in this picture? To whom is the warden accountable to – other than voters four years down the line… and I’d  conservatively guess about $400,000 later? From where or whom do the duties,
assignments, and responsibilities come from, and which files belong to whom?
It seems to me that potential for conflicts between the warden, DG, professionals, and technicians are inevitable within this unusual arrangement.
All of the attributes a warden must possess that Danielle Belec has eloquently written about are simply “hopes” of things the
successful candidate will bring about to the MRC. That is not good enough! Generalities are easily defined, it’s the specifics that are lacking in this file.
