I want to start with thanking the people of the county for having the faith and trust in me to elect me in the last election. As your Jailer, I have always put the safety of the public and inmates first and have made numerous changes in the transporting and handling of the inmates. When I came into office, I had promised I would start an inmate work program and we have and it has been a great success. The inmates have picked up 22,500 bags of trash, over 1,000 needles and over 1,200 tiles along Bath County roads. They have also painted the swimming pool every year, painted the swing sets for the school and painted the horse show ring, bathrooms, concession stand and the main building at the Lyons Club Park. They have painted the old co m house and jail building, built a new deck on the 911 Dispatch building, cleaned and painted at the Slate Furnace Park, cleaned and picked up trash at the new boat ramp at Stoney Cove and helped with building cabinets for the new Bath County Museum. They also unload, organize and pass out commodities every month. We have also started helping with the maintenance of the Springfield Presbyterian Church and graveyard which is on the National Register of Historic Places. Theinmate work program is fully funded by the Litter Abatement Program from the State, including paying the salaries of the deputies and also the purchase of a newer van the first year. I also started a felony mileage reimbursement program that has brought in $23,000 since it was started and has made the pawnents on the two new jail vehicles. The old jail vehicles cost the county $12,000 in one year for repairs. When Fiscal Court eliminated the Home Incarceration Officer position, we took over the ankle monitor program and have made a profit every month and have saved the county thousands of dollars. We, along with the rest of the country, are going through a &ug epidemic and at one point had 70 inmates in one month. Our monthly average is 40 plus inmates. At the request of Judges, the jail department has been transporting inmates to rehabilitaticn facilities which helps the inmates and also helps with the county jail bill. It has been a busy spring getting the road crews out working and up with the ankle monitor program and I may had the opportunity to ask you personally for your vote but if you a hands on jailer that is going to give you I 00% all of the and is always looking for ways to hnprove the jail procedures and find new ways to fund programs for the benefit of tile county then I am asking you now to vote for me, Earl Willis, to remain as your Bath County Jailer. I SINCERELY ASK FOR YOUR VOTE ON MAY 22, 2018
