I think they should get some of what they dish out. Turner has fired officers at the police department for improper paperwork ( etc ) so why not do the same to him for not keeping the proper paperwork to keep the accreditation. the rest of the group should be removed from office or fired also.
I sure would like to know what it is that has some of you so bitter against Turner and the city. There must be something beyond the obvious for a couple of you to be so mad.
If you spend any time around him and really get to know him you would know why. The officers at the police department don't trust him because he has fired officers for things that has done himself. He attempted to leave the police department several times and when he finally left one time he was able to get York to take him back and look where that got York. He had not been at his current post six months and was seeking a chiefs job in Chatham county. As for the city that should be no question.
This blog has drifted away from the original post. Regardless of personal views on Mr. Turner or any other department head, we should look at how our city government is ran collectively. I believe the city has had its share of issues arise over the years. Most of those issues have been addressed. If anyone has a specific legit complaint about a member of our government then they should voice it through the proper channels, and I believe it will be addressed. For instance, the issue of Mr. Britt's internet bill. The issue was made public, and Mr. Britt paid the bill. End of story; next issue.
...And before I get an inflamatory response accusing me of being this person or that person, I will say I am not a current city employee. I still reside in the city and work now in the private sector.
I understand concerns voiced by other citizens. I just wish we all would take a step back and look at the good for once. We have a thriving community, a great Univeristy, a professional public safety department, easy access to other larger cities, and most importantly we have the capability to grow into a bigger and even more thriving city.

They're looking for a new attorney. Did they fire that other one? http://marketplace.statesboroherald.c...
