Why do 3 Justice of the Peace office holders hold the title of deputy? It is ILLEGAL people!

The next logical question is do they show favor to the sheriff in return?  Why do we tolerate officials with no respect for the law?

Why do we tolerate officials with no respect for the law?  Perhaps we need to be asking this question of Judge Grisham Phillips, who considers non-selection of staff members ("at will" employment) to be firing what he considers a valuable staff, and refuses to swear in a public official over it, exacting a penalty of sorts over that individual and causing him embarassment and distress for performing a lawful act.

We do love that word "illegally," don't we?  Your campaign against Pennington is now crystal clear, Mrs. Ives, but what Mr. Ward has promised you in return for your support remains a mystery.

If things are as you have described, it is astonishing that it took until three weeks before a primary to bring it out, considering that these three men have done no wrong.  There is absolutely no evidence of any kind of favoritism, but perception, as the saying goes, is everything.  And in turn, this post finds you addressing a duck.

Politics makes strange bedfellows.  But let's do settle the issue quickly, rather than letting it hang until primary time.  My respect for you does not extend to misplaced political relationships.  Your question stands on its merits or lack of them.

Absolutely it does -- Pennington deputized ALL officers in Benton and Bryant..  The three that I believe are serving as a JP illegally is Mark Kizer, Tom Lish, and Allen Dabbs.  My question about whether they do, or could, show the sheriff favor stems from his list of accomplishments as sheriff that he has established a strong working relationship with the quorum court.  Does this sound like a violation of the law to you Duck?
