Taxpayers shouldn’t have to pay for sheriff’s damage control

So apparently our sheriff thinks taxpayers of this county should pay for a public relations firm to perform damage control in the Andrew Holland matter. I have to ask: Is this money intended to help the community, or is it intended to help the sheriff’s re-election campaign?

How much of that PR did county Mental Health get? They got bad press as well, thanks to the sheriff.

You’d think AMF Media (formerly Barnett Cox & Associates) would know that news of this development would get out and become bad PR. But what the hay — they get paid no matter what, right?

Guess the sheriff no longer needs that expensive public information officer.
