Wooweee!!! PROOF POSITIVE !!!!! Right there in black and white for all to see. Whats mike gonna do now, deny the whole thing ever happened or accuse poeple of attacking his men again?
Mike brought this system here for the PD ONLY, and still campaigns for sheriff promising to work together more for better service. Hes a real pro at talking out of both sides of his mouth. Just like the days of old!
Hey mike, your family tree is showing!

Instead of joining forces with the county to help update and upgrade the entire system so all poeple can benefit from it, mike decides to draw a line and waste money by buying a seperate system.
YUP...... fiscla responsibility alright.

he's right. Like days of old. His bloodline IS showing.

A little research would show you this system was purchased with grant money. If you dial 911 County EMS responds -- the grant money purchased a systems that will integrate with EMS and allow for a smooth hand off when the 911 call requires PD support. It does not replace the 911 the county runs nor does it stand alone it makes it possible for the two government entities to work cohesively. County government did not update the PD system when they updated theirs, however, it appears with the grant money the PD was able to stay in coordination with that new 911. I would say it looks like MIke Adkinson showed foresight and cooperation with county government to have accomplished this.

A grant can take nearly a year to obtain, so it could not have been a last minute purchase. I would say that Mike Adkinson and the DeFuniak Springs City Officers need an atta boy for having the foresight to obtain this grant!

I'm sure glad it was grant money and not taxpayer money. ;-)

maybe its frustration over how blindly people are willing to put support without checking even one claim made by candidates. maybe were tired of the lies by candidiates. Mybe were tired of misleading false statements by candidiates. Is all YOU have to do is complain about complaining? get involved. see whos telling the truth. see whou you wasnt to trust with the most pwerful position in the county.

So are you saying that unless we "work with" a particular taxpayer funded system, we, as taxpayers, have no right to comment on it? That insider attitude is exactly why government programs need public oversight and comment.

The entire 911 program is ran by the "good ole boy" system. It all depends on who you know or who you...nevermind. The hen house at the EOC is just as twisted as any other government office in DeFuniak. You see from the above posts, you don't get in there by education or experience. You can really step on some toes if you start asking questions about 911/WCFR.

I hope that you are lying about "working in 911" because as bad as you type and spell, we are in deep trouble if you are sending the help.

I was at the DAV and just heard the kiwanis, nights of columbus, dav, vfw and other local orgs. have been solicited by miks group to advtertise thay they suppport him in the sheriff race. This SO underhanded but becoming to be a trademark of his. THEY are supposed to independantly make the choice, not get solicited for it. Seems like quin is ruinning mikes campaign.
