"My Town and Yours" Thoughts and Observations of Mark Lange

The Knox County Commissioners are considering requiring county employees to wear name tags while at work. Great idea on so many levels. They are talking of allowing county police officers to opt out of the plan. Probably not so good an idea unless there is a safety issue. We deserve to know the names of all the people we employ.
The requirement is under study so how it all shakes out is still up in the air. I don't get a vote, but if I did, I'm voting for the name tags. That way I can thank those employees who are doing a good job - and that's most of them - by their names.
