Ok, everyone blames the Sheriff for not doing anything, everyone blames the jail administrator because the jail has a of TON issues.(Maybe they have tried to clean things up, but have no support from their boss)..But where does all this start WHO IS their boss..Its the county manager of course!! Get rid of Jon Saari, Abigale Robinson, and all those corrupt commisioners!!! I bet then we see some change..YOU have to start at the TOP to clean out corruption!!! Think about it!!!
THE COMMISION HAS NO AUTHORITY OVER THE SHERIFF!! NOR DOES THE COUNTY MANAGER!! THE VOTERS DO THATS IT!! THE SHERIFF IS ELECTED AND CAN DO AND DOES DO WHATEVER HE WANTS WHICH IS GENERALLY NOTHING!! SAD BUT TRUE!!
THE ONE THING THE MGR AND COMMISIONERS CAN DO TO CONTROL THE SHERIFF IS CUT THE SHERIFF'S BUDGET. BUT THEY WONT BECAUSE THEY WOULD NOT GET REELECTED. I CAN READ THE HEADLINE NOW"THE SHERIFF REPORTS THAT THE COMMISIONERS DO NOT SUPPORT PUBLIC SAFETY" THAT IS WHAT THEY SHOULD DO, BUT THEY WANT TO BE RELECTED NOT DO WHATS RIGHT!

Just for ghists and siggles vote someone in who has no family or other major history to the area and see what happens. Everybody cries that it is always the same 'ole same 'ole then you vote the same 'ole same 'ole in hoping that will change the way things have been going. Doing the same thing over and over in hopes of a different response is known as insanity.

It sure wouldn't be any worse than it is now.

I too hope Oliver wins, but were bucking a huge population of hispanic voters who will vote for Raul, just because his name is Raul. Listen to this guy speak in his radio ads, good grief! Maybe he is a nice guy, but thats not a qualification for cleaning up our Sheriffs department and County. As pointed out here, Raul is promising to address problems he should have already addressed. This guy does not have the skills needed to do the job, hes already proven that. How much more proof do we need? The things hes saying, hes saying so hell get re-elected, not because will or even can, actually do them. Hes lying to us, even if he believes himself, hes still lying to the rest of us. Look at his record.
I won't disagree with your opinion about Villanueva. However, you are WAYYYYY off base with regard to your comment about "hispanic voters". I'm hispanic, not an uneducated idiot who votes on the basis of names!
