Kids Protest Proposed Budget Cuts In Cumberland County

Posted Updated

CUMBERLAND COUNTY — Grown-ups are not the only ones worried about proposed budget cuts in Cumberland County.

Some kids protested in Eureka Springs Saturday to remind county leaders that the budget cuts will affect everyone. Jessica Osborne and her friends are especially concerned about cuts to the Sheriff's Office.

"If they lose their jobs, they are not going to be in my area anymore, and the neighborhood is going to be awful," she said.

Under the current budget proposal, dozens of deputies could lose their jobs.
