Sheriff David Morgan has changed the landscape of the county of Escambia.
After discussing with various people, what they thought the Morgan Legacy looked like, I have compiled many things that Sheriff Morgan has brought to Escambia County. As you may have guessed, this is a multi-part series, as it has been an ever growing list. Please feel free to share your thoughts and suggestions to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
1. The first sheriff of Escambia County to BECOME a millionaire while in office.
Based on the financial disclosures filed with the Florida Commission on Ethics, the following graphs represent the data reported.
What strikes me are all the properties he purchases with cash (the red figures). Even the custom built home on Copley, he only mortgaged $39K on the $50K property and complete build of this home. How many people do you know that have bought ONE property with cash? Or better yet how many civil servants have you heard of that became millionaires without a significant lifestyle change? Morgan had rental properties prior to being sheriff. He makes $152K a year as his primary job. How did he acquire so much cash and/or property?
