Jefferson County Quorum Court end in the same manner as usual on Tuesday night, with nothing being accomplished


What was scheduled to be a meeting of committees of the Jefferson County Quorum Court Tuesday night ended like every other meeting so far this year, without anything being accomplished.

Half the members of the county’s legislative body got up and walked out in what has been a continuing dispute between Count Judge Gerald Robinson and those justices of the peace over policies and procedures for operation.

The agenda for the meeting had been prepared by Robinson’s office and the dissidents objected to that, wanting instead to use an agenda prepared by the county clerk’s office. When Robinson said no, they got up and left.

Robinson was asked about that when he appeared on the Oldies 1013 morning show Wednesday.

Robinson went on to say that even though there is a disagreement, it should not stop count business from being transacted.

He went on to say that at this point, there was nothing he could do to improve things.

Morning show host Greg Horne asked Robinson if he thought that the walkout by certain members of the quorum court was being done to make him look bad and he responded this way.
