So far it has been told he let 11 go of course I don't think they were going to work for him anyway. He has demoted 2 road deputies to jailers which one quit when that happened. Running around like chickens with their heads cut off. Lol

Why was the sheriff offices trashed before the new sheriff, Johnny moates, took over and what is going to be done to the people who damaged government property? Will the tax payers be forced to pay for the damage?

An investigation should occur and the people who did the damage should pay for it or be put in jail but I do not believe anything will happen to these people.

Charges should be pressed and the individuals responsible should have to pay for it. Unfortunately this proved KM to be exactly how everyone claimed he was. I had more respect for him until I hear what had been done. It will fall upon the taxpayers but it was intentionally done so that JM would not be on budget. Sad that KM couldn't accept the people voted and no longer wanted him so he tried to take it out on JM through the office. Good luck Moats. You have our support.

From what I have heard it wasn't trashed at all. Just more lies from JM to make KM look bad. But of course the public won't hear the truth. They will only hear what JM wants them to hear and they will only hear it on topix. He ran his campaign on here so he will run his office on here too. Like Obama, I'm surre the next 4 years will be someone elses fault....

I don't know where you got your information from but I know for a fact that three offices in the sheriff office were trashed. I don't know who did it but I believe picture were taken of the damaged area.Why would Sheriff Moates want to make Kelly look bad. He defeated him for the sheriff and I believe that is enough. Kelly M. is a good honest person and need to be left alone.I believe that he made some bad choices on who he hired to run the sheriff department.

No one had to make Kelly look bad. He did a great job of it all by himself.

A good friend of mine works as a Deputy Sheriff, and I was told they indeed trashed some offices, destroyed files, took the surveillance tapes and removed all tags from the keys for the cars and put them in a pile on the table. Before leaving, many purchases were made leaving the 2013 budget without dollars. They were not even able to take inventory of all items that had been taken and had to call in a Sheriff from years ago to help with that. The many man hours it took to "clean up" is being paid by the tax payers. I surely hope the DA is doing an investigation and all involved will be brought to justice. Good luck, Johnny! Glad to have McLendon out.

First of all... they don't have surveillance tapes...lol. its all recorded on computers..... so that tells me u know little to nothing...... second of all.. if u will educate yourselves and go to the commissioners office where it is PUBLIC RECORD u will see that the 2012 budget was NOT OVER! Third, and again, the offices were not trashed when they left.... and the trustees had been brought up to clean the offices with the detail officers...... fourth, how can a past sheriff be brot in to vouch for anything that may have been purchased, accounted for, not accounted for in Kellys administration.... from what I hear JM signed off on everything before taking office to avoid such rumors....... so your Deputy friend must be misinformed or you must be trying to distort tthe truth as usual.....:) have a great day!

Georgia law requires a balanced budget at all levels of government. So technically no one ever "goes over" budget. If the Sheriff actually "goes over" budget, the commissioners must, by law, revise the budget mid-year or at the end of the year to reflect a balanced budget.
