Woodbury County Sheriff Chad Sheehan is being criticized by some local residents for bringing to Kris Anne Hall is Sioux City. Hall is a nationally known, constitutional attorney, radio host, and many say, a right-wing speaker, who has suggested most federal agencies, with the exception of the military, are unconstitutional.
Hall will speak at 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 12 at Western Iowa Tech Community College. A group called "We the People for Constitutional Sheriffs,'' is sponsoring the free event, which is hosted by Sheriff Chad Sheehan.
At last week’s meeting of the Woodbury County Board of Supervisors, four speakers objected to Hall's appearance, as well as the constitutional sheriffs’ movement.
In a statement Thursday, Sheehan defended the inclusion of Hall at the March 12 training, which he described as an "opportunity to educate the public on your rights, liberties and freedoms."
