    What Dan said. One would also think with a serious storm looming for the county, the Chairman would have better things to do than troll comments on North Must be getting tired of the echo chamber on “Escambia County Citizens Watch” on Facebook.

    @doug underhill
    The political dialogue between our elected officials in this county is what needs to grow up you guys and the sheriff bicker back and forth like school kids meanwhile it takes the commission almost four years to agree on a spot to build the new jail and we the citizens know why because y’all can’t decide which one of you are gonna gain the most from it so before you start talking about comments how about leading by example and maybe when see pictures of you guys in articles we won’t instantly think about cartoon characters we will think about leaders

    Photo bomb? Seriously??? It takes a village to keep this county running. A village of exhausted people any time we have even a low scale emergency on our hands. The folks that work the EOC can’t leave.. their positions have to be held non-stop until its disbanded. This village is comprised of every utility company (power, cable, water, trash, etc.), law enforcement agencies, DOT, Fire, EMS, and multiple other agencies..
    Everyone has to have a plan, everyone has to work together, that’s done to keep the citizens safe and to keep things running as normal as possible.

    Get over yourself if you think this was a meeting where adult leaders were acting like groveling children.

    Sheesh, guys. It takes a special kind of person to drop political crap onto the pictures above…The political dialog in this county needs to grow up. You know what I see? Leaders from the County and City together with the State, focused on taking care of people in a time of need instead of grandstanding and in spite of our differences. If you see anything different, that is on you and maybe you ought to look inside of yourself a little. Notice the Chairman (me) wasn’t there? That was because I had a meeting to run and Jack was in the hospital. Grover volunteered to fill in for me. Teamwork. It’s easy to complain about stuff, its even easier if you make up your own facts.

    F.E.M.A is going to need a massive influx of cash to keep all these natural disasters from causing a destabilizing effect on this country. I pray more attention will be put on environmental factors and maybe getting us back in the Paris Climate Agreement with everybody else. China, France And the U.k. recently announced that all gasoline vehicles will be outlawed in there countries in the near future…

    All of elected officials couldn’t wait to start snitching on each other Morgan looks like he couldn’t wait to tell on the commissioners and they can’t wait to tell on him remember it’s who get to him let the snitching begin

    Good grief.
    Did the sheriff not know they were taking pictures ?

    I wonder what kind of monsters the Sign Language guy was warning about this time!

    Scott has been a wonderful Governor, especially with his management of Emergency response.

    I can’t help myself here..look at the photo bomb over Scott’s left shoulder. That’s a classic Northescambia, and for any others following the news, you know what I mean.

    Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words.

    Hope there is not too much to Nate.

    I believe Scott was already in town with the Gulf Power symposium and his wife Ann was doing a few thing here also.

    Glad he came by.
