Blevins Wants Jail Decision Before Election


The Democratic nominee for Rowan County judge executive is hoping the decision on a site for a new county jail is made before the November election. However, Walter Blevins says if it isn’t and he’s elected judge, he’ll deal with the issue quickly…

Blevins thinks its unlikely property values would decline near the site of the new, 300-bed lockup. He says they didn’t when prisons were constructed in West Liberty and Sandy Hook.
