Jerry Daniels did his best to make everyone feel uncomfortable on Tuesday morning at a meeting of Allen County commissioners. He was not pleased and he wanted everyone to know about it.

The commissioner started the meeting by saying recent Iola Register and KOAM TV news stories were a “bunch of lies.” The stories referred to the county’s 2020 budget. 

Of note, Sheriff Bryan Murphy’s budget requests were for the most part denied, though he was ordered to give 3% cost of living and 1% percent merit increases to his 17 employees. Meanwhile, Angie Murphy’s budget for 911 Communications was cut by $5,000, the only department to receive a decrease in funding.
