Next stop for row office reform: May 17 with the voters of the county

Allegheny County's Executives signed the 10-4 plan that puts the ballot question before the voters of Allegheny County voters.

Keeping the Sherrif's office as an elected position keeps politics in law enforcement. However, the move keeps their boots out of the game. They have a lot of muscle. Had this been a 10-2 plan, perhaps their might would have swung the fight to no refrom at all.

Keep the Treasurer as an elected office is interesting to me, personally, in an around-about way. A potential opponent in the 42nd Senate has that office. His job is not up for elimination. Staying put might be an option that makes more sense.
