Three citizens and some members of the Jackson County Board of Commissioners verbally attacked commissioner Tom Crow Monday night for his reported part in a lawsuit filed by four citizens to stop work on the new West Jackson EMS station. A hearing on the lawsuit is scheduled for 9 a.m. Monday in Jackson County Superior Court.
At the BOC meeting Monday night, citizen Ron Johnson told Crow, “You need to man up and be honest with people. You want to move it closer to Jefferson ... You are trying to get more service for people in Jefferson … Shame on you. You are wrong. You are wrong. You are wrong. Who is going to pay that money back when you lose the lawsuit? … You don’t care about the taxpayers. You care about one person and you are sitting in his chair. That is all you care about.”
More than 15 area public safety volunteers and interested citizens attended the BOC meeting. Three spoke on the lawsuit and the EMS station. No action was taken and Crow’s response to the citizen questions was: “All of that will be determined at the court hearing on the 10th.”
