Michael McGowan: One county government?

First let me state that I am a fiscally conservative Democrat and not a card-carrying Tea Party type. I’ve always wondered why in our small county, we have four town governments and a county government for 30,000 people. The duplication of services has to be huge. Five police departments – really? Think of how much our taxes could be reduced by having one county government instead.
