Twiggs County Man Suing County Commission For ‘Improper Use’ Of Public Funds

A Twiggs county man is suing the county Commission, for what he calls “improper use”of taxpayer money.

Walter Ashby is accusing Chairman Ray Bennett and the other commissioners for violating a 1983 Court Order that addresses misuse of taxpayer money.

Ashby cites two incidents in which he says the chairman and the commissioners used a dumptruck owned by the county for work at the Old Marion Baptist Church.

Ashby believes that’s a violation since county resources were used for personal use. Now he’s asking the courts to make the board pay back the money it would cost to use the truck, and he wants the commissioners to be put in jail for 20 days for violating the court order.
