Losing overtime pay sucks but most don't do too much as we were working 12 hour shifts. What is going to suck more is 8 hour shifts. Now we have to be at work 5 days a week instead of 3-4. Fuel and food cost goes up. Less time with families, daycare expenses rise, and days off change.

It is also a slap in the face when the sheriff gives out raises and promotions to his favorites. Not to mention the use of a county owned vehicle to use as they please. There needs to be changes made, starting at the top! Remember to vote.
