The $1000 payments to vaccinated employees was tabled without discussion: https://blnnews.com/2021/10/14/local-republicans-prove-their-worth/
The County has their own democrat who refuses to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance. Hannah Beer:
Every Democrat and three Republicans voted yesterday to table the jail contract for tablets. The inmates love them, today they don’t have them. The Sheriff had them all removed because the contract wasn’t approved.
The issue was tabled over charging inmates for their use. The democrats think the contract can be renegotiated so the inmates aren’t charged for their use. A black lives matter representative spoke at public comment, he isn’t black. He doesn’t think the County should make money off inmates. In other words folks: TAXPAYERS should be funding luxury items in the jail like tablets. The County also makes around $200,000 a year off the phone system, just wait until that contract comes up. The Democrats will want the inmates to get that for free too.
All of these charges to inmates help fund jail operations. If the inmates aren’t paying these bills TAXPAYERS get to pay all the bills. The incarcerated will be fed, housed, use phones, and get tablets at your expense. Crime does pay!
Black Lives Matter is feeding information to the democrats on the County Board. BLM wants the police defunded, progressive democrats are more than happy to comply. Taking away revenue is defunding the police. Local democrats: Is this your party?
Progressive Democrats don’t believe personal responsibility has anything to do with people landing in jail. They want to coddle criminals in order to rehabilitate them. Crime is rising everywhere because of democrat coddling. Local democrats: Is this your party?
Thanks to the Board action the inmates are very unhappy today, some are threatening a hunger strike. I hope the Sheriff provides them with the County Board email address, especially the democrats. They are why no tablets for the foreseeable future will be in the jail, the issue was tabled to some date in the future that wasn’t stated.
Three Republicans joined the democrats, one is expected: Josh Barnett. The other two are: Catherine Metzker and Randy Martin. Rumor is Martin wants to charge them more, hence his yes vote. I emailed Metzker, no response yet.
This is the guy the democrats are taking their marching orders from:
