Who's Chairing the Anti-Drug Committee? - Day 91 of the Jackson County Ethics Blackout

According to every official document I have seen, Dan Tarwater chairs the Anti-Drug Committee, a powerful committee that controls the $21 million COMBAT tax. As the only member of the committee who does not have a rap sheet for financial crimes, he is probably the least inappropriate person of that committee to be in charge.

Why, then, is James Tindall claiming to chair the Committee, and using County resources to publicize that claim? Is it an attempt to convince inattentive outsiders that he is more influential over the dollars than he truly is?

Of course, it's probably just a mistake. But, with the County Legislature fighting hard against Ethical Home Rule, and with an Anti-Drug committee consisting of two people with financial rap sheets, it's dangerous to assume that things are on the up-and-up.

Until the legislature accepts Ethical Home Rule, it does not deserve the benefit of any doubt.

Why is James Tindall using county resources to claim he is chairing the Anti-Drug committee?

Thanks to Dan Tarwater the anti-drug tax finds its way into the programs of the Catholic Church.
Pretty soon these funds could wind up in soup kitchens with justification that clients maybe drug abusers.
This is also why Tindall is getting bent on taking something for his parishioners.
Just ask the new sheriff why he had so much "support" from inner city churches this election.
