Developers, not taxpayers, run this countyWhile the Carroll County commissioners are trying to decide who is upstaging whom (Commissioner Richard Yates, remember to get on the stage), and while planning commission Chairman David Duree is in the throes of an moral and ethical nightmare, the development community is silent as any proper winner would be.
