The county can not afford to provide insurance for its employees but the sheriff buys 4 new SUV a (120000). And wants a new jail now who needs to be replaced to save money

I agree plus look at the unsolved crime rate. We have the worst in the state. If the voters saw his budget and saw how he talked to people no one would vote for him.
He is not a republican. He is a white Obama. It's time for a change and clean the house. Any one that has a burns sign in yard or votes for him is not well informed or just plan stupid. I hope this year will be different. I hope this year the voters will wake up and vote him out. Time for a change. I am for term limits anyway. We only have a governor and president for 8. We don't need a sheriff in for over 15 years.

Why should the county be providing insurance for its employees? Pay for your own health insurance out of your own pocket. You aren't special just because you work for government, it's not my responsibility to pay for it.

The officers need new cars to drive around in they could ride bikes in this large county heck response times would be 24 hours not 2 hours then besides we the people can pay more taxes to keep building the new jails and fancy cars for our officers . 35 k average wage in our area .

Don't vote Burns back in. He's been in office long enough to know exactly what to expect, why is anyone surprised? Ready for a change? Vote him out!

Its not our call we elected the sheriff and he is free to keep us safe in anyway he can think of and all we have to do is pay more taxes to pay for it year after year .

It ain't Burns fault that 3/4ths of Greene County are drug headed thugs. Help stop crime instead of whine about the after effects.

I have YET to see ANY officer driving "junk" around here. There is no need for an SUV. What exactly is there to haul? Are they used to pick up all the dope heads passed out in cars? Do they pile in illegal immigrants?

Or is it a status thing?

You are hilarious! "He's a white Obama? We need change?" Last time people voted "for change" - Obama took office!
If you think you can do a better job than Steve, why aren't you running against him?
Yes, I AM voting Burns. No, I am not uninformed nor am I stupid!

I would love to know why all those vehicles sit unused down at their transportation area on Summer St near the workhouse. I also agree about questioning the need for the Sheriff, Jones & Milligan needing big sport utility vehicles. Granted, there might occasionally be the need for mountain patrol issues but I would not think enough to justify those expenditures for sheriff dept employees who don't even do patrols. I doubt he utilizes random drug tests either of a bunch of employees would not have jobs! Our tax dollars pay for this waste and all of the lawsuits from his mismanaging a very valuable county department. Wouldn't we be better off not wasting tax dollars & spend on more important things than higher ups at the sheriffs dept getting big fancy vehicles?

Instead of talking smack about Law Enforcement, why don't you support and help them once in a while. Report a drug dealer. Cowards and whiners.

Corrupt county, election year they call the news media before they do anything..just recently diverted a transport van for 5 hours so they could assemble the media and give it a five car escort . Hope nobody needed an officer then . Cause department was gone showing off those cars and trying to be on the news.. What a joke elect anyone else... Cause during election is the only time he does his job . Now ain't that strange.

New sheriff. . New ems director. . New commissioners. . New everything. . This county has gone sour. . And it stinks. Need officers who actually patrol the county not sit and play cards at the station. . Need people who care about the citizens. . Not just look at them as a paycheck or a problem. If more people would step up and speak up then the county wouldn't be like this. Granted not everybody who works for the county is wrong. We do have few good ones left that haven't been run off yet. . Just matter of time
