I was hopeful that they were going to take a stand and vote to make it official that they intend to eliminate (longevity pay) during the next budget cycle. Voting in favor of eliminating it today would have sent a strong message to the voters and they chose not to do it. I was glad that Joe Jaynes did take a stand and make a motion, but I was disappointed that there was no second.
Over the last week or so I have been very disappointed and very dismayed that one of the candidates has started a whisper campaign against Judge Ron Harris and myself, questioning our Christian beliefs. Those of you know me and how we raise our family and that we have very close Christian ties we have not campaigned on it and I will not campaign on it.
