Leadership is about doing the right things:
“Take over the jail. Do it. Take the responsibility and the liability no later than January 1st,”
Sheriff P.D. Taylor
“I’m not even certain that it’s constitutional, that he can just decide he’s going to abruptly abandon his responsibilities at the jail until the Jail Trust invokes the right to take over the jail,”
County Commissioner Brian Maughan
