WATCH SHERIFF P.D. TAYLOR GET BUSTED BY HIS FELLOW OKLAHOMA COUNTY OFFICIALS.
Oklahoma County Sheriff P.D. Taylor is asking Oklahoma County's elected officials for more tax payer dollars. Three resolutions were proposed to raise the annual pay of the deputies at the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office. The pay raises are badly needed and none will dispute that, but where that money comes from is as important as where it needs to go. Fortunately for Oklahoma County citizens, some conservative elected officials stepped in to mention that the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office is leaving money unspent in it's already appropriated budget, rather than giving their deputies and staff the pay raises Sheriff Taylor so insists the tax payers of Oklahoma County need now afford.
"You have total authority to give everybody raises if you choose to with in the budget that you have within the dollars you have. You don't have to ask us... Don't turn back money to us at the end of the year, because you can spend that on raises for your employees and we would applaud that I think." - Oklahoma County Clerk David B. Hooten
