    County to Allocate Funds for Campground

    By Judge Executive Shane Gabbard
    Good Morning, When I was elected and took office in 2015, I began writing almost every week an article that our local papers have been faithful to publish. I decided that it would be a great way to keep everyone informed on what is taking place in local Government and a way to get information out about meetings of interest and local issues we face. I intend to keep up these articles as long as I can. I receive feedback often from many of you stating you enjoy reading about local issues we are dealing with and how we are being transparent in our work. I believe we owe you nothing less than just that. It's your tax dollars we are allocating and using to fund local Government so it's you right to know what we are doing with them. I look at every issue seriously and try to make the best decision on every matter as if it were a personal matter for myself. We want to do a good job for Jackson County.
