Robinson talks about recent meeting


Jefferson County Judge Gerald Robinson was a guest on the Oldies 1013 morning show Wednesday, a day after he shut down a meeting of the Quorum Court before they could take any action.

Robinson made the decision to halt the meeting because the Justices of the Peace couldn’t agree on an ordinance setting out procedures to operate under for the next two years as required by law.

Morning show host Greg Horne ask Robinson if some members of the Quorum Court wanted to try and micro-manage the activities of the court and want to run things.

He went on to say this.

Robinson said the sheriff or his designee, the Sergeant at Arms is responsible for maintaining order during meetings.

He also talked about Justice of the Peace Alfred Carroll arguing with County Attorney Terry Wynne, who Robinson said is a “seasoned attorney with 30 years of experience.”
