Neither former Property Assessor Parkey Strader, John Whitehead or Former Register of Deeds Steve Hall ever called the Sheriff’s office when they laid someone off. This is Ballard’s 2.0 version of “Promises Made, Promises Kept” during the campaign he promised more jobs to new cronies, political operatives and contributors. So he had to get rid of five today. But hold on there are promises of two, three or more tomorrow or in the near future.
So, while five people are no longer employed in the assessors office and the sheriff’s department kept him safe during the day. Ballard is now safe working through the night in his basement with his farm on Farmville. Hopefully one of his farmville horses doesn’t kick him while he is farming tonight.
