With the recent forced rehiring of two of Mason County deputies at the county commission’s and county taxpayer’s expense, the Mason County voter must take a serious look at our upcoming election.
The previously elected sheriff did not follow proper civil service procedure and guidelines in his attempt to fire deputies with just cause. This lack of knowledge cost Mason County nearly $70,000 in addition to more embarrassment with all of the negative headlines and press coverage. Do Mason County citizens enjoy being the laughing stock of the state?
On November 6, we have the option of electing a candidate with a career of law enforcement, administrative and civil service experience or a candidate who has never conducted an investigation, collected evidence or any of the key aspects of law enforcement. With three unsolved murders, drugs running rampant throughout our communities and robberies becoming and everyday occurrence, I feel electing a retired state trooper is a step in the right direction to restoring our county.
