Here we are again with another person in a position of responsibility be investigated by the State Police on improprieties related to taxpayer money. Couple that with the fact that this person is also a "NO" vote on a new high school in an elected position and you wonder how we could get so lucky.
First, is it really alright for a County employee to also be an elected official? It might be legal, but is it ethical. Now he's accused of embezzlement. Should he ever have been in a position to touch money in any way? Not to me.
Next is how does an animal control officer steal money and no one notice? Who's in charge of this guy? Are there no checks and balances? This isn't the first time there has been funny things going on with money in the sheriff's department.
He's resigned from the school board and placed on administrative leave. Now we need the investigation to follow the trail back to how this happened and who else should be investigated.
