Dear Ms. Janet Fritz, 

Is this the same Ron Parson who cheated to attain a certificate that the rest of us earned? And, then lied about it? 

Is this the same Ron Parson who took taxpayer dollars as a reward for cheating and maintaining his law enforcement officer certification? And, then lied about it? 

Is this the same Ron Parson who was demoted for abusing those who served under him? And, then lied about it? 

Is this the same Ron Parson who told employees of the HCSO that lawfully expressing their opinion (under First Amendment) would not be tolerated by him, or Sheriff Hammond? And, then lied about it? 

Is this the same Ron Parson who bilked the taxpayers of Hamilton County out of thousands of dollars of unearned overtime? 

Is this the same Ron Parson who has been protected, and sheltered, by Sheriff Hammond since Sheriff Hammond has taken office? 

That Ron Parson, Ms. Fritz? 

Ron Parson has a longstanding reputation, alright, but it is not as you, Ms. Fritz, claim in your instant letter to the editor. 

You must not know him as well as we do.
