Mailing wrongly identifies Bandera sheriff

BANDERA — A recent mass mailing portrays Bandera County Chief Deputy Richard Smith as sheriff, to the dismay of those running against him to fill the post vacated last May by Sheriff Weldon Tucker.

Smith expressed surprise over the computer-generated letter from the Sheriffs' Association of Texas, which is written to appear as if it's from “Sheriff Richard Smith Sr.”

Smith attended the group's conference last fall, but didn't recall enrolling to have a membership solicitation letter in his name sent to 3,000 local households.

Steve Westbrook, director of the sheriffs' group, said participants in the mailing opted to fill out a form and a draft letter was sent weeks ago for proofing.

Smith said he couldn't recall if he'd seen the proof. He expects some opponents to raise the matter but said,“I don't think it's that big of an issue.”

No, no big deal just leaves the impression Smith is the current Sheriff and a liar.
Advertizing on the County's Facebook page and now this.
If you vote for Smith you are an idiot.

Sounds like our last Sheriff.
Dis honest doesn't even begin to tell it.
Smith got caught using the County's facebook page to advertise his run for sheriff.
He hired his own son at the jail. He gave not one but two horses to his former boss hogg Tucker and then was promoted to chief deputy.
Geez how much does he think he can get away with anyway?

smith was offered sheriff position ,turned it down ,why ? HE wanted the people to decide who THEY wanted to fill the position . i know this for a fact . as for computer generated situation ? seems very minor to me as well as the face book situation ,in wich i believe an apology was given .if smith were involved in any major wrong doing there would be concequences i and everyone else have yet to see .including the horse and gun acusations .calling us idiots is a low pathetic thing to do to those of us who have suffered loss ,corruption ,lies and pure crap over the years ,for some of us it has been life changing .how dare you say this to us who are praying for change ,justice and hope ,who believe smith IS our man opposed to some retired ,same old promises selection of candidates.smith is not sitting idly by he and been fighting to clean up the county ,meth labs ,sex offenders ,injustice and corruption going on as we speak ,i know this for a fact . i respect shadows opinions though i dont always agree haha ! but to you jerk who call us idiots shame on you! i will be taking to smith about these issues myself,,it would be an adult thing to do yourself instead of talking smack.as for shadow ,have a great weekend friend .
