In a recent issue of The World, I read an article concerning John Sweet (Coos County Commissioner) that quotes Mr. Sweet as saying that, as relates to the county being compensated by the state for something to do with bed space at the county jail. Mr. Sweet alleges that the county was being paid for bed space not actually being used, or something. He said this was like stealing.
Well, I for one would like to congratulate Commissioner Sweet for acknowledging that the county has been stealing money. Takes a lot of moxie. Perhaps this kind of honesty could start a new trend in local politics. Kind of doubt it, though.
