Undecided at the moment, but I absolutely refuse to consider any candidate who supports banning cannabis cultivation.

You mark yourself with the scarlet letter of stupidity by attempting to re-wrangle the horse of cannabis prohibition.

                Probably does not matter anyway, because the sheriff does not make the laws. But having a big city elderly cop in this area might not the best for our county.

                  Then again, I am reminded of a quote by Rear Admiral Grace Hopper

                  "The most dangerous phrase in the language is 'We've always done it this way'."

                  I think that someone with "big city" experience who looks at things with a fresh eye will be the best thing for this county.

DiBasilio does not have the leadership skills needed to fix this department. He may be a “nice guy” but the department, (patrol, custody and dispatch) is a sinking ship. Good luck to Stevens when he inherits the problems created by years of poor leadership.

    He does have one of those things though.
    He ordered it last summer & I just got the main body-portion in the forge right now.
    No other Candidate has another thing, so it's fairly obvious that he & his thing will win.

Was my character's name in Gamma World, he was a mutant badger/palmetto tree that shot poisonous barbs for protection.
I had Pat till he was squished by a half Geisha/Yugo back in the remains of Sarejvo.

    Sorry, I am voting for Garrahan because he is the best qualified. And, no I don't smoke or grow "pot", I have never been on welfare and never intend to be. I am a long time resident of this county and quite capable of making a voting decision based on qualifications.
