Election 2015: Harrison Co. Chancery Clerk Candidate Brian Carriere on the Woody Pringle embezzlement

In 2010 it was discovered that the trust accounts of dozens of Harrison County residents had been raided by an attorney responsible for overseeing these accounts.  The Chancery Clerk was required by MS statute to audit these accounts annually, but is allowed to do so more frequently.  John McAdams failed in his duties and responsibilities and the attorney committed suicide when the embezzlement was discovered.

I am running for Chancery Clerk to protect every citizen of Harrison County, especially our most vulnerable.  It is a travesty that this occurred in the first place, but it is even more of a tragedy that the Clerk is claiming he, too, was a victim and that we should credit him for stopping the embezzlement.  The culture of corruption that exists in Mississippi politics MUST end.  We can only do it one office at a time but on August 4 the voters in Harrison County have an opportunity to replace one incumbent with a new perspective.

I promise to be a FULL TIME Chancery Clerk.  I have plans to implement strong control measures to secure your tax dollars and the estates and property of our vulnerable citizens who have been assigned to the Chancery office by the court.  To learn more visit www.votebrianc.com and please vote for Brian Carriere in the Republican primary on August 4 in Harrison County.

  1. Every attorney in Harrison County worth their salt, knows John McAdams violated basic oversight of Mississippi code 93-13-67 up one side and down the other for years.

    Right now there are two cases where Johnny violated serious federal laws and he is being sued directly and those have nothing to do with Woody Pringle. If that is not bad enough, the cases in question involve two Veterans.

  2. Selecting the right person for the Chancery Clerk position is important in all counties. If a person has been involved in any questionable activities then someone else should be considered. McAdams may not have received any benefit from what took place involving Woody Pringle but he did fail to properly oversee this lawyer who was employed by him.

  3. Republicans are all about transparency and accountability when it comes to Democrates, there’s only one problem with that now; not a lot of Democrates. So now the strategy is turn Stacy Puckering loose convict some low hanging fruit so the big thieves and the Republican Party leaders can feel good about themselves. Can’t expect a high level of ethics when we have a thug like Pickering in office.

  4. Yep, all one has to do is look at DMR & SRHS pension plan to see what we have elected and most likely will reelect. But he won’t get my vote!
