I totally agree with Hood Richardson 100 percent about the jail. The employees there and the inmates are both there by choice. The employees chose that profession and certainly knew it would be challenging. Beaufort County cannot afford it.  We cannot pay for anything we cannot afford. Maybe they should be sent to other facilities and that would be more cost-efficient. Let the voters decide.


I’m just a poor independent living in Beaufort County, but I do know you Democrats out there better get your heads out of the sand and start paying attention to what’s going on in the world. It’s all over FOX News. All you got to do is watch it.
