There appears to be yet another skill Janet Huffor does not have; basic math.
Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder is losing more employees than any other sheriff in history. Many cannot even make it 6 to 12 months and are buying time just to get out as soon as possible. When you cannot even hold on a few months you know it's bad. Over 50% of the employees have left since Elder took office. More are planning their exit.
We have heard multiple stories of Deputies walking out of the jail. We heard one story where Sgt. Perry had to chase a deputy down the main hallway and beg him to stay. Did you ever think Deputies would walk out of the jail? Elder created this mess and he cannot fix it.
Corrupt Elder had to do something and quick. He convinced the county commissioners to give him a bunch of money so he could give big pay raises this year. But of course he screwed that up. It should have been Jane Fromme, under the supervision of Larry Borland, who calculated the pay raises; but Janet Huffor wanted to do it. It's our understanding she wanted to take the credit. After all the mistakes her and Billy have made she wanted to do something to change their reputation. Unfortunately it appears she did not have basic math skills to pull it off. According to our source on command staff Fromme expressed her concerns with Janet doing the calculations and stated she should do it. But like everything else; when it comes to the Huffors, ELDER DOES NOT LISTEN. Corrupt Sheriff Elder has been told numerous times by multiple individuals on command staff to get rid of the Huffors. It's our understand Elder agreed to remove Janet as chief of staff, but when he told her she threatened to hurt herself; again.
So, Janet Huffor was allowed to put together the pay raise. Not a real challenging assignment for most, but when you're Billy and Janet; making poor decisions is what you do. Of course there is no pressure because if you are a Huffor you can initiate a pursuit out of policy, ram the vehicle causing a multi car accident and pull your weapon without having to worry about getting disciplined. Other people have to live with consequences; not the Huffors.
Janet could have asked Jane Fromme to verify her numbers, but she didn't. Janet does not need anyone to check her work; she's a Huffor. So, she presented it to the Sheriff and he approved it. With all the mistakes the Huffors have made Elder should have known to have someone verify the numbers.
Here are the pay raises that were announced:
Look good? It should; Janet spent approximately 1.4 million more than the county commissioners allocated. Whoops; that's not good. Our source told us when Elder was told he quickly asked the county commissioners for more money and they said no. Corrupt Sheriff Elder cannot go back and fix it because it's already been announce. He told everyone on command staff to keep quiet (obviously that didn't happen) and make sure no one finds out that Janet did it.
The plan is to eliminate some positions (WTF?) and just go with it and worry about it late next year. Guess the overtime and training budget is going to take a hit. However, pretty sure Elder and others on his command staff will still take their trips.
This is the ineptness you get with nepotism
How can you mess up by 1.4 million dollars?
