The power monger group of six: Chandler, Chandler, Henderson, Girrens, Reiss and O’Leary, four of whom are now members of the country council, one now running for a position and the other the leader of the pack would like to puff out their little chests and show the community that they can manipulate and or eliminate offices in this community thereby taking complete control of our local government.
They started with the county treasurer and now they are targeting the Sheriff’s Office, the most important elected office in this community. That group of six have been unable to to present a single viable or intelligent explanation as to why such a fierce attack has been leveled against our Sheriff. The budget and redundant jobs argument brought up by the county council has been shown to be a lie since the council was unable to present a single fact supporting their arguments at the last council meeting.
The Sheriff doesn’t write the rules but does protect us from unlawful situations including those perpetrated by local government. Some on the county council cringe at and fear that power. It’s not time to eliminate the Sheriffs office but to rid this county of underhanded county office holders.
Those county council members who want to eliminate the office of the sheriff ultimately want to eliminate the voice and vote of the people in this county. Their devious methods push issues that are unpopular with the public until they ultimately get their way. We’ve experienced that in the past and now deal with an even more devious group. Get rid of the Sheriff, gain control, and then it’s free sailing for them. Their plan must not be allowed to succeed. We have the right and the need to have a county Sheriff and we have an outstanding elected Sheriff who deserves our full support.
