Head of Monroe County Board ousted for supporting new criminal justice facility
The head of the Monroe County Board was thrown out of office for supporting a much-needed criminal justice center which taxpayers said they couldn't afford.
Dennis Hubbard lost by 18 votes to Jim Schroeder in a recall election this week. He was the eighth supervisor to be removed for supporting a $27 million criminal justice facility in Sparta, at a time when many county residents have lost their jobs.
The project was scrapped after the new supervisors took over.
