Yes. If you are Republican, vote for Scott in the primary (no Democrat opposition in the fall). He will be great of his own accord. Much better than ... well, than what we have, the master puppeteer Kent Waller and Ernie-let-me-pad-my-retirement -Mendoza (nice guy, terrible sherriff).

Usually, I don't believe Republican or Democrat is an issue in local, low level elections anyway.
Which ever way, we definitely need new personnel and some bright, honest leadership devoid of good ol' boy outside influence.

You vote for Mendoza, you get Waller. "Chief Deputy" means Waller calls the shots and it puts him in line to be re-elected sheriff next time around.
Vote London

Exactly right. I'm sure they are very familiar with the old Childress/Lewis switcharoo...it worked well for them for way too many years. Time for new blood in the sheriff department. Vote London.

Again, what does Lomdon (London?) stand for?

What is his platform? Just to beat Mendoza? To be a Republican Sheriff? To make Eddy Co history? Political stair-stepping??

WHAT??!?!??!!

a vote for mendoza waller will cost the taxpayer $10 million

property tax $$$$$

if you rent your rent will increase

if you own your taxes will go up

FOREVER!!!!!!

we do not need a new office for the sheriff
Eddy county population is the same now as it was 10 years ago - why would I need a bigger office

About London the guy says he wants to buy the "Latest and Greatest Technology" for the Sheriff Dept. Sorry but if you have to rely on technology to get the job done you might as well be replaced by a robot... Mendoza has my vote.. This is like saying anybody but Obama so I'm gona vote Romney their views are pretty much the exact same you just dont want a Dem. you want a Rep. president.. Besides what does Rep. or Dem. have to do with a Sheriff?

We had a break-in at our place in Queen when Waller was Sheriff. My husband called the SO and asked for a deputy to meet him up there at noon as he had to repair the damage that had been done during the break-in. He told them that there were footprints coming over the fence into our property and footprints going back over the fence as they were leaving and that he felt they could be followed to where they had originated and perhaps our stolen items could be found. The dispatcher said someone would meet him up there, then immediately called back and said there was no one available until after shift change. I guess they were too busy cruising around town writing speeding tickets. He told the dispatcher that it would be getting dark by that time shift change rolled around and that he'd be home by then. They were TOTALLY disinterested in investigating this incident. I don't think it would have been any different with Mendoza as sheriff as both are cut from the same cloth. If that is truly the kind of sheriff you want then by all means, vote for Mendoze/Waller. Personally, I want someone in the office who realizes that he works for the people of Eddy County and what his job entails, even if it means a drive to Queen to investigate a break-in.
