Folks, there has been no stability in the MCSO jail since Franklin took office. For example, since January 1, 2018 - present Franklin hired 63 new employees and 56 employees left the SO. Of those employees, many of them were from out of the county. The jail has little to no continuity. Of those employees hired almost half of them were from out of the county. Franklin has a number of employees and or contract personnel driving MCSO vehicles home. We can't help but wonder how many of those employees from out of town are driving vehicles home and have credit cards. Such as Larry Berzett who drives his nice fancy sheriff's office vehicle to Rogersville to and from work and all around. We also have Dee Goodwin driving one of the vehicles with a credit card as well.
These actions approved by the sheriff is costing a ton of taxpayer dollars to be used frivolously. Another example of fraud waste and abuse of MCSO resources and tax dollars.
When will this madness end? Franklin has been allowing vehicles to be driven out of county for years even though her own policy is that all employees must live within Morgan County.
Franklin is spending money as if it grows on trees. She is purchasing new vehicles for her favored ones while telling the deputies no overtime, limit your travel, and ignoring their needs for new vehicles.
Fraud, waste, and abuse alert.
