Let Your Commissioner Know Your OpinionMar 1st, 2011 | By Jacob | Category: Front Page
The Ten Commandments monument is sitting on a truck on private property on Highway 90, next to Courtyard Apartments. A placard, bearing the urging people to call their county commissioners and have them support the Ten Commandments being placed on the Courthouse Lawn, is on the back of it. Because of the wind, the placard was face down when the photographer took this photo. Because this newspaper believes it is the right of citizens to have their opinions heard by their commissioners, we are putting the numbers of the commissioners here. Remember, the commissioners work for YOU and should be willing to hear YOUR opinion, whatever it may be. Each commissioner makes more for a part-time job ($27,131.04) than many people make working at a full-time job, so they should listen and take your opinion into consideration. The phone numbers for the commissioners are: District 1, Justin Hamrick, (850) 464-0119; Wayne Vickers, District 2, (850) 929-4555; Renetta Parrish, District 3, (850) 973-3990; District 4, Alfred Martin, (850) 673-1567; and Roy Ellis, (850) 971-5864.
