As much as it pains me to admit it – I just read an article in the local print newspaper. Our supervisors want to gauge public response to a tax increase to build a new jail. Might I also point out that our deputies and sheriff’s office personnel have not had a cost of living increase in several years. Would you favor a tax increase for these purposes.
We want you to respond,. We will print out your responses and hand deliver a copy to each supervisor.
I, Thomas Parker, as a citizen of Warren County, am very much in favor of this. We continually lose good people to other agencies due to our lower salaries. The cost of training and re-equipping new officers far out weighs what it will cost taxpayers to retain officers by raising their salaries.
Part of the problem with our system is many of the criminal element know there is “No room in the Inn”
