During yesterday’s fiscal court meeting, Magistrate Phil Sammons made a joke about tourism director Jennifer Kirchner’s legs while she was presenting information about the local transient room tax. Kirchner called out Sammons during the meeting, saying, “I’m a professional woman up here talking about tax rates, not to be objectified about my legs.”
