when linn county voters go to the ballot box in november -- one of the biggest votes they'll cast wont be for any candidate in any office. office.linn county decided to expand the board from three to five almost ten years ago.last summer, the group- concerned citizens of linn county- county-started rounding up signatures to shrink the board back to three. three. in rural linn county -- it's pretty common to ?not see a lot of people.but in the linn county board of supervisors meetings -- at least two representatives are here to champion the rural cause.john harris represents district

south and splits it up but it goes from mount vernon to prairieburg to coggen... they're rural communities that john is afraid would get left behind if the board shrinks. district four supervisor brent oleson feels the same way. people that vote for me that i directly represnt are from marion, are from central city, are from bertramoleson says a strong cedar rapids is good for all of linn county.but with just three seats -- the board may be dominated by supervisors elected by the voters who live in the city -- and something like the much needed improvements on squaw creek ridge road and lakeside road may have never happened. oleson says that's how it was before the board expanded in the late 2000's -- when he says road budgets and rural priorities suffered.he says the same thing happened when the cedar crossing casino project was figuring out ?who would pay for ?what."we were asked to bond 25-million dollars to build a parking garage and own the parking garage for the casino. and i
5:56 am
says the temptation to become what he calls an "extension of the city council" is there all the time -- it's up to the supervisors to push back. "we're working with them, but keeping them in check, it protects the county taxpayer." one of the most vocal opponents of the supervisors is kevin kula.one thing that i have found out since i started going to the meetings and stuff is that there's not enough work for five people let alone three full time.he argues that rural linn county isn't represented when the supervisors give hundreds of thousands o artwork that ends up throughout cedar rapids -- while the abbie center gets shutdown.brent oleson disagrees.when one of two historic bridges was washed out in bertram -- brent says the city's small -- part time council -- came to him to help get the money they needed to replace it.the same thing happened between central city and coggon -- with a railroad crossing needed to be repaired. i met someone at the convenience store and we drove out together, took pictures, and sent it to the railroad. i'm not sure you get that kind of close representation

5:58 am
like what the supervisors are doing -- and how they do it. "i'm not sure if that's coming from the silent majority -- or the vocal minority" if the board drops to three members, they would have to be careful about open meeting laws.no two supervisors would be able to have private conversations - meaning they could only talk to each other during their meetings. meetings.if this referendum passes -- there would be another vote to figure out what the linn county board of supervisors would end up options -- three at large supervisors -- redrawing the districts from five to three -- or a combination -- where two supervisors each cover half the county -- with one at-large member on the board. if you're just getting up, good morning -- it's now right now it's degrees in coming up next...the new memorial for one of the deadliest mass shootings in u- s history. history.you're watching c-b-s 2 this morning -- covering the
