This county has serious issues facing it today.
The ever growing drug problem has led to a deterioration of an entire generation, leaving the burden of responsibility to fall on the grandparents and the older citizens of this region to raise their grandchildren and financially support this county.

With the time that is given me , I will continue to work towards our ever expanding garden as a resource for saving taxpayers money by feeding our inmate population from it’s produce and by teaching our inmates a valuable skill they can take with them the rest of their lives.
We are also the first jail in the United States to offer it’s Work Release Inmates Surface and Underground mining classes. I believe coal will always be the backbone of this county.
Together we can continue the rich heritage that is….
