    Salaries are public record. Review salaries from 2007 to 2013. the record will speak for itself.

    Sounds like a lot of ‘back scratching’ going on, to say the least.

    Best thing that could have happened to Escambia County. He was not for the community but for himself and his cronies. He operated on information fed to him without seeking the truth. He got what he deserved.

    I was wondering why Kerr sent his letter the Newsom. I looked on the county’s website and was surprised to discover that six of the department heads to include Kerr work for Newsom not Tourat. This helps explain why county government often seems to be so discombobulated with unclear lines of authority and accountability. I was especially surprised to learn that the head of the Corrections Department works for Newsom not Tourat who will not have any significant role running the jail for the duration of his tenure. Whoever the Commissioners bring aboard to be the next short-term County Administrator should at least be capable of supervising all of the departments of county government at once.
