The VDT was kind in their reporting —Jessica Bryan Hughes

This speaker talked about when her mother took her to volunteer at the old shelter, and how bad it was, then about how the current shelter started.
When I moved back to Valdosta five years ago, I couldn’t believe the change. A real shelter and animal control officers that had compassion. I personally know some current and former animal control officers. They are caring compassionate people with a deep love of their jobs.

When I read about the cruelty and neglect allegations in the paper, I couldn’t believe we had reverted back 25 years.

So she looked into it, requesting the files from the Dept. of Agriculture.
What I received was a slap in the face. The Valdosta Daily Times was kind in their reporting….
You can listen to her yourself.

Here’s the video:

    I only recently found your blog, when someone showed me your video of Monday’s meeting. I love it. Thank you for posting all of this wonderful information about our community. May I just mention, that my maiden name is “Bryan?”

    As a lawyer you may find the item about the intergovernmental contract interesting. The county has committed itself to paying the Industrial Authority’s land debts while it is short of money for everything else. -jsq

    No, I’m not a lawyer. I work for one. I do think the land debt issue is very interesting, though.
