Bonham – It's being called a bittersweet ending for Fannin County Sheriff Kenneth Moore who, on January 1, will resign from his post after six years if office.
In an interview with KXII-TV, Moore said that while he has enjoyed his time as sheriff, he is leaving because he has been unable to get his deputies what he calls a "living wage," a goal he set out for himself when he took over.
According to Moore, starting pay at $23,000 a year is unacceptable.
