Note to the Sheriff of Washington County.

The ballot issue known as Proposition 1, the proposal to raise taxes to build a “Justice Center” in the industrial park was defeated by a substantial margin in the last election. Rumor has it that this issue is to be again placed on the ballot in the near future. Your plans to appoint a committee to inspect the jail and promote this issue based on the results of this inspection is a complete waste of time as is paying for another election . The previous election outcome on this issue proves the voters of this county are NOT in favor of building a new facility and/or raising taxes to pay for it.
Repair the jail and stop trying to let it deteriorate further to justify a new facility. Take the deal the Federal Government has offered to pay for a new facility in exchange for holding their prisoners.

Don’t waste your time and our money beating a dead horse.

      • Washington County Residents are taxed to death. The Sheriff is completely out of reason even suggesting the county build the proposed facility.

              We had 5000 people in prison in the state.Now we have over 32,000. Why is that? Did everyone all of a sudden become a bunch of troublemakers?What caused this drastic increase?
