Latimer said the move is “consistent” with other things he has done, such as taking the
county executive’s name o signs at parks and on public buildings.

He thought that that “statement was necessary to make because we were trying to re-
direct the way the county government operates …” not around the agenda of a particular
person or party, “but around certain principles.”

Latimer said he’s “very aware” of what’s been happening – politically – in the county
over the last three years.

e Democrats have had, he said,“a lot of success. But you can’t misread that to assume
that we have acted unilaterally with that success.”

“We have worked cooperatively across the aisle with the Republicans in local o ce and
on the county Board of Legislators.”

Working together for the common good is something the Founding Fathers intended,
said Latimer.

But, his life experience and his turns in various public o ces, have led him to believe
that what’s needed “right now, at this moment in America, is the willingness of elected
o cials to act with self-restraint, rather than saying “I have all the power to do this, so I’m
just going to do this,” Latimer said.

“When you drive your car every day, you know it can probably go 100 miles per hour, if
you put pedal to the metal. Aside from the fact that you’ll get pulled over and get a big fat
speeding ticket, you know that the road conditions do not allow you to drive beyond a cer-
tain speed. Common sense tells you that the capacity to go to a certain speed is not wise.”
