Wabasha County Board drama


WABASHA, Minn. (KTTC) - The drama continues for the Wabasha County Board after meeting for the first time Tuesday night since a major blow-up between Commissioner Deb Roschen and Chair Rich Halls.

Roshcen claims the board is treating her unfairly, because she's a woman.

It all started a year ago, when the Board fired administrator Dave Johnson and eliminated his position due to budget constraints.

Instead, they created the position of County Coordinator.

However, five months after Bridget Hoffman was hired to fill that post, the board eliminated that position as well.

Then, at the last meeting - the heated relationship between Commissioner Roschen and Chair Rich Hall surfaced.

Roschen responded to what she says was an attack.

It's unclear how the county will fill the role of county coordinator or administrator...whichever title they decide to give to the position.
