I certainly appreciate and respect Sheriff Mike Slupe’s right to patronize any establishment he chooses. He has stated that he will not allow his deputies to use any company that has broken its ties with the National Rifle Association. What if those companies are cheaper?
As a Butler County taxpayer, I do not give Sheriff Slupe permission to use my tax dollars unwisely; that is, paying more than necessary for hotels, car rentals, air fare, etc., because the cheaper company has cut ties with the NRA. I use the cheaper alternatives and I certainly expect an elected officer using my money to do the same.
