This week, St Johns County Sheriff David Shoar explained in the press that the job of “public information officer” is not one “where you are out on patrol one day, and the next day … you’re it”. Although, twenty years ago, that’s exactly how his latest retiree, Chuck Mulligan, came into the job.
Now, Shoar reportedly says, as of March 1st, he is going to continue paying the retired commander; this time as an “independent contractor”. His reason is supposedly not just to help out the man whose brother, Pat, is married to Shoar’s sister-in-law, Connie, but Shoar was quoted in The St. Augustine Record saying he needs to bring Mulligan back for “about a year” to train up someone else in the agency to do his job.
St Johns County taxpayers are already paying nearly a half-million-dollars each year for these other St Johns County sheriff’s employees to already be trained:
