Beaufort County Commissioners - August 3, 2020 General Meeting: Jail Door Report

    On August 3, 2020, the Beaufort County Commissioners met in an open general meeting to discuss many issues, not least of which is the ongoing and massively expensive repair of the jail doors that have been stretched out now for over a year and a half since the doors were first discovered as a problem.

    Commissioner Hood Richardson discovered this managerial anomaly a few weeks into my re-emergence as a county commissioner, then drug me in for support; finally a second after 4 years of being politically alone, a Conservative against the backdrop 2 Democratic Socialists and 4 nominal Republicans. To which, and you must see this, Hood simultaneously compliments those commissioners in charge of the jail door fiasco, and then claims credit for using this monumental mess-up to report to the commissioners that they will now never need to build a brand new, and very expensive jail. This was rich.

The Beaufort County Commissioners discuss the jail doors conundrum with the county's engineer, Christina Smith: Below.



Apologies are inorder for the sound quality, nonexistent as there was no aplification, when Commissioners Booth and Deatherage speak, for their microphones at their table were not engaged, and was not corrected by technical staff for nearly the entire meeting ... Ooops.
