To the editor:

Before the upcoming election, here are a few points to ponder…Who can ensure that drugs stay out of the jail? Who REALLY is responsible for the jails…jailers, sheriff, police officers? What can we do about the ethics in the police department? Kudos to the wonderful officers we already have, but what about the lawsuit against one of our own officers for sexually molesting a child? What about the lawsuits brought against the city/county for wrongful deaths in our jail? Isn’t it the taxpayers’ dollars that eventually pays for these lawsuits? Who can we elect into office that will not actually COST us? We have to ask ourselves, “When is it time to clean house?” Obviously, Sheriff Andy Taylor of Mayberry isn’t an option, so before voting just ask yourself… “Who really is the right man/woman for the job?”
