Spencer County Fiscal Court can no longer afford the current sheriff both in monetary terms nor in terms of believability and law enforcement credibility. Please allow me to explain.
Sheriff Buddy Stump was elected in the 2010 election and took office in January 2011. He cited his management skills and the unreasonable high cost of wages for the existing sheriff deputies and claimed he could provide 24/7 patrol and 911 call response services should he be elected. But here is what happened instead.
