Abstract

This research looks at how professional county managers cope in a fragmented political structure and is based on feedback data gathered in telephone and personal interviews and focus group sessions with managers. The interviews suggest that managers struggle with the lack of centralized administrative authority and, consequently, some initially struggled in trying to assume an appropriate role to function in county government. The comments reveal that managers place value in a facilitative-participatory style that transcends political actors and departmental staff. The article concludes with directions for future research.
