The commissioners are the ones that chose to cut our pay and our benefits. They are the ones that chose to ignore the Georgia State University study, which could save the county millions of dollars. Oh, and by the way, the commissioners, especially Boo-rail have tried to hide the study. Here it is for your reading pleasure.
Burrell Ellis is the one that chose to give his staff exorbitant pay raises and car allowances, while making us work holidays for no pay, then eventually furloughing us.
Boo-rail, and his gang, including bad check writing Sharon Sutton, are the ones that took us for fools and for good little lap dogs. They forget, like Jeff Wiggs of the F.O.P. says, we are the ones that keep the citizens of DeKalb safe. Don't take us for granted!
This is heating up. We are going to feel pressure from the command staff like never before. Remember some simple rules. Do not use county equipment, including the internet for anything other than county business. Know the manual. We can't stress harder, join the F.O.P. or P.B.A. and opt for the legal defense. The command staff will be looking to make an example out of somebody.
Some are throwing Derwin Brown's name around. For those of you who knew him and where around while he did great things for us, ask yourself; would he approve of us laying down at the feet of the commission? Or would he expect us to fight for what is right?
You know the answer. You saw how the county treated his family after he was gunned down.
This is going to be a hard struggle. Again we say; stay strong, stay united!
