The Forgotten Governments: County Commissioners as Policy Makers

By Vincent L. Marando; Robert D. Thomas | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

WE have incurred a number of debts in the process of bringing this study to print. The study would not have been possible without the cooperation of Florida and Georgia county commissioners who answered our questionnaire. We appreciate the assistance of Hill R. Healan, executive director of the Association of County Commissioners of Georgia. During various stages of the project, we received financial support from the Office of Water Research and Technology, U.S. Department of the Interior, as authorized by the Water Resources Act of 1964 as amended, the Institute of Behavioral Research and the Institute of Government at the University of Georgia, and the College of Social Science at Florida Atlantic University.

We benefitted from the comments and counsel of a number of friends and colleagues. We should especially like to express appreciation to Keith G. Baker and Robert Sellers of the University of Georgia, John M. DeGrove of Florida Atlantic University, Thomas P. Murphy of the Federal Executive Institute, Charles Press of Michigan State University, Morris W. H. Collins of American University; each read the manuscript in whole or part and we profited by their suggestions. In addition, several former graduate students assisted us at one stage or another. Keith Hamm, Scott Reilly, James Herb, Ray Brown, and R. Wayne Boss assisted in collecting and compiling the data. Jane Thompson was especially helpful in editing the manuscript.

Those persons associated with the University Presses of Florida were of assistance to us, and Charles Tittle of the Florida Atlantic University publication committee was extremely helpful in providing critical review of the manuscript.
