QUESTIONS THAT SHOULD BE NAGGING THE COMMISSIONERS
The voters are left with at least three very serious questions that all could have something to do with money whether Henry Patterson is re-elected or not:
1) Why were their no arrests at those two huge fields of marijuana law enforcement officials were led to by a concerned citizen?
2) What would we see if we were handed a detailed accounting of how the assets were appropriated that came into the LCSO for the last three years?
3) Whose civil rights have been violated by “investigations” that can be linked back to the sheriff and were the people doing the work even licensed to do legitimate “investigations”? Did they receive any compensation or even an expense account paid for by the county?
All three of these questions nag at my mind when I think that these people have said they are “investigating” all three of our judges, the district clerk, at least two of our commissioners, the district attorney, the county attorney, one Liberty police detective, two justices of the peace, one constable and several private citizens. Our commissioners can ask these questions of Henry Patterson and since the city of Liberty’s attorney has made public one of the open record requests he has received from Robert Valdez, it may be wise for local officials to gather up all open record requests sent in to any department and call Patterson before them and get some answers.
