    January 12, 2022 - Publisher's note: Due to a publishing SNAFU, I have been remiss in my duties, here at BCN, regarding the proper categorization of county government publications; in particular, the Enhanced County Government Videos, begun August 1, 2019.

    Therefore, to thoroughly correct this miscue, I will make the proper categorical correction, and bring these archives forward beginning on January 12, 2022; mixing these historical patterns of fact in with the current news of our day. Some posts brought forward will not be video broadcasts, but most informative posts as to who and what you Beaufort County Commissioners are, and how they govern.


Publisher's note: In the spirit of perfect transparency, these correspondences have been archived within the structure of our posts' complex of continuum on BCN.

    Recently, Beaufort County's commissioners extended an invitation to Beaufort County's sheriff to meet with them in public session, and work through issues that seem to be swirling around his office as is professed and projected by the Sheriff and his ardent supporters. In conclusion of this effort, Sheriff Coleman rejected that offer by offering the correspondence below:

    Thank you for the open invitation to appear before the commissioners and "address any issues concerning the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office". Which are many. After personally reviewing the last 6 months of televised meetings online I have decided not to subject the integrity of myself or my Office to such a hostile narcissistic environment. Commissioner Richardson continues his monthly slander of my Office with many unsubstantiated terms such as: corrupt, mismanagement, and cowards just to name a few. This is extremely unprofessional and not the way to run county business. I will continue to abide by State Law. I have assigned Chief Deputy Charlie Rose and the Director of Administrative Services, Callie Harris to assemble and present our budget to the County Manager. Chief Rose will attend the budget workshops to advocate for the Office of Sheriff and I will use whatever resources that are allocated to my Office to continue to protect the citizens of the County with or without your financial support as I am mandated to do by The State Constitution and State Law.

    More to come.

    Sincerely,

    Ernie Coleman


    The Sheriff's terse reply to the Beaufort County Commissioners request was in response to the correspondence below.
