Letter: who is in charge of county coffers?

Cynthia Meyer writes:
James Roberts has hit the nail on the head with his statement about raising taxes once again in Adair County. Who is it exactly that is responsible for overseeing the county coffers? Obviously, they are not doing the job they accepted to do. No one needs to be reminded about the hospital debacle, nor is anyone saying much about the two hundred THOUSAND + dollars that was grafted from the jail monies - which cannot be repaid.

County employees simply laugh, as they tell you, your taxes are going up while they use county equipment and inventory for personal use on personal property. Try to contact the County Judge Executive about abuse of county funds gives you no answers or half-truths. But I bet a dollar to a donut that she will be voting for raised taxes, yet the monies for those taxes will be coming out of the pockets of Adair Countians who have to go outside the county to find jobs to make a living as Adair County has minimal jobs that pay over $10 an hour.
