Blogger Comments: It is obvious that Bill Hightower is running for Governor. His ideas are nothing new to us folks in North Alabama. I believe Tommy Battle is also on top of the same issues as Hightower is. We need to hear more about what each of the candidate's purpose to do about the sheriffs taking inmate food funds. We need to hear more about earmarking and what the candidate's purpose to do about it.
In addition, the article states that "Republican Auditor Jim Zeigler, who is running for re-election, has called for an investigation into the sheriff's finances."
We hope that Mr. Ziegler opens investigations on many more of the sheriff offices in Alabama. For goodness sakes do not leave the sheriff of Morgan County out. We believe that is one investigation that will be eye-opening and make the Etowah County Sheriff's $750,000.00 look like change.
