    Excuse me but didn’t the sheriff’s department and county attorney’s office JUSt get sued over illegal warrant practices? Like 260 k worth and LOST. Why would this activity be honored?

    He won a popularity contest for Sheriff, whoopee!. Notice he became sheriff in 2001, but only got his tiny AA degree in 1999. How does his time at NIACC attribute to his “success”? A position like that should at the very least have a master’s degree. MC Police Chiefs have to have one. He’s definitely nothing special.

    He is the good part of the problem. That is why he keeps getting re-elected, time after time.

        WHY, always blame it on the man, there’s two sides to every rumor. You know about living in glass houses don’t you.
