Commission nomination controversial

You have to wonder what Sulphur Springs District Supervisor Bob Martin was thinking when he nominated Billy Mitchell to serve on the Planning Commission last month.

Mitchell, a former county administrator, was convicted 17 years ago for embezzling more than $400,000 from the Carroll and served time in federal prison.

Martin has gone on record with his belief that Mitchell has been paying his dues and deserves a second chance.
