Here’s the lead quote in the story:
“He has a way of getting his way,” Supervisor Richard Flora said of Church. “Some things that Butch has done have been good for the county. But sometimes his methodology takes away from that goodness.”
And here’s Church’s view of the matter:
“No chairman can dictate, dominate, intimidate. They’re one board member,” Church said in an interview Friday. “These things are totally opposite what Butch Church is about. I’m not about power. I am an individual who grew up poor, has nothing, and I treat everybody with utmost respect.”
According to the story, neither of Church’s opponents — independent Carter Turner and Republican David Drake — have made an issue of his leadership style so far in the race.
