Nothing in the open records law says those boards can’t release that information, it just says they don’t have to. Billy Guice, the attorney hired by the county to investigate the mess, said Monday he knows “who was told what and who wasn’t told about some things,” but he said he can’t reveal that information.
This should not be a tough call for the supervisors who hired Guice. Do they side with the retirees and taxpayers of Jackson County, who will be voting to re-elect or not re-elect them, or do they continue to keep the facts secret about what went on at Singing River Health System?
What Guice knows should be shared with everyone, and soon.
