In a little more than a week, voters in two districts of San Miguel County will decide on their representatives on the County Commission.
The commission doesn’t get much scrutiny from the public or the media.
Part of the reason is that the county is a relatively smooth-running machine with little drama.
But it’s also because county commissions in most places don’t get much attention.
In a city, we’re closer together, and that results in many contentious issues — zoning, nuisances, public utilities such as water and sewer.
