Why are city employees not drug tested on a regular basics? I think all departments should have their records checked & signed off on by someone often. Too much already lost. We pay our taxes & then have to pay more, to make up for what has been stolen. If you take home anything that is not yours, then you are a thief. Pens-posted notes-tissue-paper towels ANYTHING!

I'm not attempting to justify Mr Roberts actions, I'm only requesting that u please keep in mind that he has children and a family that can and probably will see all of the comments left on this post. So please for the children's sake, keep it clean or keep it off of here. They don't need to be punished because of their father's actions and bad habits of the recent past.

Keep in mind Mr. Roberts lack of concern for his children and family. He placed himself in this situation, no one else. He also betrayed the trust of the citizens of this county. I really don't feel sorry or concern for him. He made a decision as to what to do. Actually, he never should have been elected to this position.

I'm not saying that his actions weren't wrong, and as parents it's not possible to ALWAYS choose what is in your child's best interest (even if u try your hardest) but don't penalize these kids for their fathers mistake. That's all I am saying.

I think Ms. Chaffin and Mr. Roberts ran for the same position.
Of coarse Mr. Roberts was the victor. I, for one voted for Mr. Roberts, which was the best choice of the two running.

I hate to continue being a snot but lets not forget that a great deal of Putnam County is simply appointed to positions of power. If he's voted in, lets pretend to be greatful for maybe a few days before castrating him. Tax Assessor is just assumed a law breaker until he's a story or made to break the law.

Cheating the taxpayers out of over a million dollars to help her buds is a little thing. She is more corrupt than the three combined. Her day is coming!
