In response to my repeated requests since 2008, asking St. Johns County Commission to create an independent Inspector General, County Administrator Michael David Wanchick angrily said in May that there's a waste, fraud and abuse inspector in the compliant Clerk's office. Now it's been renamed "Inspector General," sans fanfare or explanation.
Does this putative "IG" lack independence, report to an elected Republican, lack teeth, guns or badges or prosecutorial abilities that true IGs have in local, state and federal governments?
We shall see.
Meanwhile, note that contrary to assurances given by County Administrator MICHAEL DAVID WANCHICK in the Roper report, this office does NOT assist people with concerns about discrimination or retaaliation.
Here's the putative "IG" website.
Here's what the website looked like on April 4 & June 12, 2017 (source: Internet wayback machine):
