There is more dead wood than you could ever want right there in that photo, two cocky looking cons you are. Issue permits and charge people for doing work that you would have to pay for, are you two stupid or retarded?
How about cutting salaries and getting rid of your relatives that aren’t really needed to pay for the roof?

51:50 forward, watch Tony Amadio’s mannerisms. This is what we as taxpayers pay for, a nearly absent commissioner. As discussions proceed no input, thinking about what’s for lunch, and “boy I need to get these nails done.” Let’s get someone in there that is, at the very least, … engaged.

Wonder who’s cousin is getting that roofing job? I am certain, it will be quite padded cost wise, and not last long at all. Wonder what it really costs to do it?

That cousin will soon have a county contract to repair anything and everything in the courthouse. Cousin will probably find the cause of the roof leak….all the hot air in the building.
