          The Commissioners did not give Bridges the smaller budget. To my understanding, it was 1 commissioner and the supposed to be JUDGE that set the budget! I pray for the judge. He has not the county at heart but only a vendetta against Jason Bridges which is going to affect ALL the people.

          It is way to late for Milstead to act like he is concerned about the budget for law enforcement. He has supported Bridges all along and Bridges ran on the format that he thought there were way too many jailors and that Kerss was not handling the monies correctly.Bridges stated that he could run that department on a smaller budget so that is what the commissioners gave him. Stand up, be a man and do what you said you could do. Commissioners, let the budget stand the way you have proposed!
