All of these people were complicite with Ana’s deeds and participated in lying, abusing sheriffs fund. Some invested thousands in the Performance Auto Sales, took lavish trips and enjoyed their reign of terror. They took the sheriff's office down to its knees. Leaving hardworking employees to try and hold the office together with little or nothing to work with.
Ana targeted good deputies and employees to force them out so that she could bring her own goons in who are willing to do her bidding. Ana has gone through multiple new employees whose only desire was to make a living for their families. There are still a lot of good hardworking men and women who have refused to allow Ana to run them off.
Progress has been made with Ziaja's indictments and Greg Steenson facing multiple felonies for his part in the crimes. For Greg Steenson and Steven Ziaja, their crimes all fall back on their PONZI scheme involving the Performance Auto Sales debacle. Greg Steenson ripped Jeffrey’s off for $3,000,000.00 but he was not alone; he had plenty of help. It is time for the new. Early 2018 we hope to see multiple arrests. Once those who banded together to destroy the sheriff's office and defame our county have been arrested, charged, and convicted we can put this black eye behind us and begin to rebuild the reputation of our county and bring in new businesses, increase the population, and regrowth of our cities and our county.
That is if we can keep billable Barney away from giving huge tax breaks to any and all businesses that desire to move into our county. I am looking forward to a bright new year. We will always face unknown trials and difficulties in life that we must face. Those challenges are called lessons from God. Once we learn those lessons we move on to more lessons. We have been through seven years of lessons. It is time for us to learn our lessons and move forward in 2018 to new challenges.
Maybe Sheriff Franklin and her crowed can find a little Jailhouse Rock.
