All these years I thought Carter liked Deming. So much for that. Guess he took our money and ran. Now his retirement is somehow being better spent in Tucson?

Could it be that he would have a tough time explaining why a four hundred sixty thousand sub'staion build for the Sheriff department will not be occupied as planned to the public? Its been ready. The only reason on record is The Sheriff and under sheriff did not like the location and they said lease it to someone else. If you did not like the location you should have made a big old fuss before you allowed the tax payers dollars to be wasted not a few years later. Just announcing you had no imput in it is a pretty weak stand on the waste of the tax payers dollars. I would say you people have some explaining to do and Columbus wasted yet another four thousand dollars of money they did not have on another building you cannot occupy. You did a remodel with out a lease. How many failed locations and waste of tax payers dollars is exceptable before the public says enough. The public has funded four that I am aware of so far and we have yet to see you occupy any of them. Reality wasting tax payers hard earned money even if its grant money is just wrong. Commissioners stop voting for failed property purchases its just not cool any more.

Correction:

It is closer to $450,000 and paid for by County officials (under Vinson's guidance) who late last year discovered the Project had never been completed.(1997 to 2011 Luna Co. Minutes)

It is understood Columbus only leased OR sold (??)the property to the Sheriff, in the Industrial Park Zone, which had been "given" to Columbus by County Commissioners. The ex-mayor hoped that it would attract businesses to the Park.

One hand washes another.....as the old saying goes.

You might want to read all those County minutes you are talking about.
I read all of them. I can darn sure think of many better uses in the county than 460,000 thousand dollars on a property no one will use. They did not ''discover'' it was not finished they knew it was not finished, they put off the completion as long as they could. They were just hoping the public would not notice, like their other purchases that were bad choices.

Hum... interesting. Well at least by not promoting anyone, there is no movement within the ranks... thus... saving the taxpayer big bucks while paying out all that so called overtime and compensary time that Carter racked up over the past decade... Like a severance pay for Carter.

With no movement to the next election, and not one standing out from the ranks who even wants to be the next Sheriff... I vote for the 1997 DHS Class Clown... Who was that anyway?

The good news is the reason the position is not filled is because the Sheriff is finding it hard to find someone else who is willing to go over to the dark side. There is hope for Luna County after all. Speaking of saving the tax payer money has any one heard what the Sheriff has decided to do with all the land purchases the tax payers bought for the department? How is the remodel of the newest purchase coming along?''over time and compensary time'' not.
