How can this guy run for office if he is a full time employee with the county? State law says you must take a leave of absents or resign from the county.

I have never seen where a Deputy would have to resign to run for Sheriff. They do it all the time.

deputy sheriff, or police officer is exempt from the resign-to-run law unless the person is seeking to qualify for a public office which is currently held by “an officer who has authority to appoint, employ, promote or otherwise supervise that person and who has qualified as a candidate for reelection to that office.” If the subordinate officer, deputy sheriff, or police officer must resign, the resignation must be effective upon qualifying for the office, not the later times specified above for an “officer.”

So, a deputy sheriff wishing to run for sheriff against an incumbent sheriff would have to resign, but if the incumbent sheriff is not seeking reelection, the deputy sheriff would not have to resign. Also, if a deputy sheriff wishes to run for a non-sheriff office (for example, state representative or city council), he or she would not have to resign under the “resign-to-run” law.

Man this guy has such an impressive resume on paper...wonder why he never promoted within Bandera County with all that experience? Better ask around to see if this guy is for real. I'll get back with what I find out.
What the heck

Ok I've been checking around a d apparently this guy retired from the BCSO because he was getting demoted to the patrol division after it was learned he was keeping property which did not belong to him or have any evidentiary value. The administration was apparently about to file felony theft charges on him at the time which forced him to return the property to the rightful owners.

The after he resigned, administrators found that he had used county computers and a county funded investigatory website, to locate property owners to help his wife in locating these property owners to help her real estate business.

I also learned that there were at least two reports from individuals in the county related to misconduct related to a female complainant, and improper contact with a minor.

McGilvray,is as worthless as tit,s on a boer. He needs to campaign somewhere else besides Lakehills he,,s not wanted here.I,ve dealt with this jerk on a very serious situation and he turned his back because he didn,t want to get involved. It had to do with a child molesting case in which a 6yr old girl who was molested for 3yrs He more or less called her a liar, And before you ask how do I know this the young girl is my grandaughter. It,s taken the last 2yr to get indictments against the freak just so the DA,s office Steven Wadsworth could drop all charges. But thanks to Mr Smith ans Sgt Baretteo they aren,t gonna let it go. Keep up with the news all hell is getting ready to break loose in Bandera. AND MCGILVRAY GO AWAY YOU ARE NOT WANTED,

I believe this man McGilvray is only interested in what might get him ahead. When involved in investigations he is almost impossible to reach by phone. He is very bad about keeping in contact with people involved with crime cases and just leaves them hanging.
Definitely not Sheriff material, I don't believe he is deputy material either.
Look into why he left the department to begin with.

He left because it was the only way he could run for Sheriff.If I understand the law right. If Smith would have accepted the sheriff,s position then McGilvray wouldn,t have to resign but since Smith decided to run instead McGilvray had no choice but to resign. Man I hope I didn,t confuse anyone on this even though it confused me. Bottom line Smith is the best canidate out of them all

I believe Smith is a lying no spine want to be.
He just got caught campaigning from the tax payer paid County facebook page. That is against the law and he knows it.
Now not only is his campaign gone from the facebook page the entire page was taken down.
Hicks resigned as admin istrator of the page for some reason. Even though they all say it was all a big mistake.

Hi Shadow, First off let me tell you I have been campaigning for Mr Smith and I used my facebook to let everyone know I was petioning for him. Him and Jose Baretteo are the only 2 who have been helping my family for the last2and a half yrs to get this child molesting piece of crap off the streets and the DA,s office dropped charges after he was indicted and court date was set. But these 2 men as far as My family is concerened have been great and they arent goona let it go. Tell me something dirty on Smith and be sure you can prove it and untill you can I,m not believing anything that comes from you because I know better. You have nothing good to say about anybody and you never have

I told you once before the stuff is going to hit the fan on Smith just wait and see.
Keep in mind your gratitude for these people is fueled by the fact they helpped you but look how it has turned out.
Smith was just caught as I said campaigning from the Bandera Sheriff's Office facebook page. Start with that crime.

Richard Smith was Not "caught" campaigning on Facebook! Read the express-news article on it! You are constantly bad-mouthing officials-if I were you I'd move because you're miserable in Bandera Co an you want everyone reading these posts to join in your misery...oh wait...you're just a miserable person who can't control anyone so you spread garbage with your mouth and negative gossip. Smith is proving he can handle all the crap he inherited, and those that deal with him on both sides of the law know he is fair and honest!

Smith was indeed "caught". The web site was set up by Smith and his buddies for the purpose of having Bandera taxpayers pay for his campaign.
Fair and honest like hiring his son to work at the jail? Again this practice is against the law.
I know it bothers people like you to hear the truth so you wish I would go away but it ain't gonna happen.
I spread the good news about Tucker and got the same crap.
If you think I am always negative just tell me one time I said something that was un true. It is just your corrupt buddies are always stepping into it and you don't like to be reminded.
I said Tucker was corrupt and dis honest and had to listen to people like you saying he was just being picked on. Then he plea bargains to a felony for what-doing nothing wrong?????
Wake up to things around you and be part of the solution not part of the corrupt problem.
Look at the number of deputies working in Bandera right now that lied to a grand jury to help their boss and got away scott free. Part of Tucker's plea bargain that no one else would be prosecuted. They let the felon Tucker help the liars avoid their own prosecution.
No I am not going anywhere, I am gonna keep on the bad guys until they are all gone.
Oh BTW that crap about Hicks just "liked" Smith's campaign page and it just magically appeared on the Bandera Sheriff's facebook page is a lie in it's self-No that can't just happen like Hicks said and anyway if nothing was wrong there why did Hicks resign as administrator of the web site?
