Before he goes off to prison for corruption, Burrell Ellis just keeps right on with his cronyism.
Just like his mentor, the corrupt convict Bill Campbell, Burrell has hired one of Campbell's former posse members, Jill Strickland as a county spokesperson. Her $125,000 yearly salary is coming out of the county's parks department.
Where have we seen this before? Remember when the commissioners stole 40 million dollars from the parks green space fund with the promise of paying it back? Has that money been paid back?
It seems like Ellis, before he is shipped off to possibly the same prison Bill Campbell did time, is just saying "screw it" and giving his buddies a clear shot at the county coffers.
More then ever, we have to make sure Bonita Ransom of Human Resources, another member of Campbell's posse and Ellis' underling, is not allowed a vote on the pension board. We shudder to think.
