The “go to jail” if you use drugs signs posted by Sheriff Songer leave a horrible first impression to anyone visiting, thinking of moving to the county, or someone wanting to start a business here.

We send that message and then wonder why people are reluctant to move here. Optics are everything and these optics are not good for the community.
