Editor: Part II. In my previous comments about the sad state of wages for our deputy sheriffs I suggested everyone send a fax to Gov. Nathan Deal supporting parity for deputy pay.
That was a mistake as the governor is a lame duck who couldn’t give a hoot about equal treatment for our Liberty County deputies who protect and serve us 24/7.
In fact Sen. Michael Williams is a strong advocate for deputy equality. Last year, he submitted legislation to resolve this injustice, but it was quashed and never got a hearing. Sen. Williams is not only resubmitting the same legislation this year, but is in the running for governor with this issue as one of his main campaign issues.
I urge all to complete and fax the form in the media player at left to Sen. Williams in a show of support of our law enforcement folks.
No fax or need a form?
They are currently available in the sheriff’s office in the justice center, or at Mr. Cash in Midway where you can complete one and they will fax for you.
