Rumors, Rumors About Tomorrow's County Commission Appointment Meeting

On Saturday, I was approached and given a rumor, a hot rumor. The tale goes that the Commissioners were planning to convene on Wednesday morning and a majority would vote to postpone until the court hearing is concluded and if Moore and Pinkston were ousted from office, then the remaining Commissioners would throw out the name of Dwight Van de Vate for Sheriff.

When I heard the rumor, I immediately called Mr. Van de Vate, he returned my call and his response was laughter, when he stopped laughing he said that his response is a NO.

This morning on the Hallerin Hilton Hill Show, Commissioner R. Larry Smith in an interview actually advocated delaying the appointment vote until the court hearing was concluded before proceeding with teh appointment votes on Wednesday.

Later this morning, Chancellor Fansler delayed the court hearing so that R. Larry Smith could not delay the appointment meeting.

The appointments will happen tomorrow at 9:00 a.m. and Dwight Van de Vate is happy in his current job.
