Charles County Commissioner President Candice Quinn Kelly issued the following statement on comments made by Commissioner Debra Davis at the commissioner’s meeting, Tuesday, April 28: “There were comments made in today’s Maryland Independent [and The Bay Net April 29] regarding the need for an audit of the Sheriff’s Office.
“NOTE: The Charles County Sheriff’s Office is AUDITED along with Charles County Government. This is the link to the Audit Report that was presented to the Board of Commissioners on December 10, 2013 – all Commissioners were present. https://www.boarddocs.com/md/chrlsco/Board.nsf/files/9E4U375D507C/$file/Charles%20Board%20Report.pdf
“I can’t explain why any commissioner would suggest that the CCSO wasn’t audited. Suggesting scrutiny on other agencies, beyond the audit conducted, without including county government, is akin to throwing stones at the proverbial glass house.”
