The Covington News - - OPINION -

Chris Wright said: “Since it is that easy, can I get a loan from the county too?”

Candi Pol­litt said: “Where do I sign up?” Com­mis­sioner J.C. Hen­der­son re­ceived a loan of $4,500 from the county. Le­vie Mad­dox said “this does not seem to pass the smell test.” Den­nis Tay­lor said: “Lot that hap­pens at the BOC fails to pass the smell test. When do we ex­pect a state­ment from the Chair­man on this or is that now the job of the BOC Face­book spokesman? Trust from the cit­i­zens has to be earned Mr Chair­man. Whether le­gal or not giv­ing an elected of­fi­cial an in­ter­est free loan with tax­payer funds just is not right and a slap in the face of all New­ton County tax­pay­ers. I hope the Com­mis­sion­ers have al­ready sched­uled an open called meet­ing to cre­ate a writ­ten pol­icy against it and nip this be­hav­ior in the bud.”
