I think a great candidate should want to make El Paso a safe place tp live. How can Richard Wiles make El Paso safer? He can stay unemployed. Lets do a little spring cleaning. Lets keep out the trash. Say no to Wiles and Esparza.

I am sure Wiles advantage is his role as EPPD Chief of Police. Wiles disadvantage is that is is pubically known that running for Sheriff was not his first choice. Austin's job was, and perhaps they were concerned about rumors and chose the latter candidate. Name exposures for ignorant voters may get him many casted ballots, but the fact that he has such a chummy relationship with big contributors and some alleged corrupt conspirators is quite discerning.

We must remember that there are 11 other candidates and they offer just as much experience and some like Wiles are double dipping the system by supplementing their retirement payments, but others just truly want to serve. LARRY WILKINS for Sheriff he is just as white, and has the respect of the present deputies. NO backdoor rumors and/or snickers for Mr. Wilkins

The coruption in the Police department has been going on since the Leon days and continued when his protege Wiles took over. Read up on the facts. Here are a couple of names you should research. DeAngeles and Cortines and wait there is the lawsuit with the cop who claimed he was black balled. Get your head out of your ass and stop kissing Wiles' ass. He is a lying worthless piece of trash. Yes those are good traits for a politician now a days but that doesn't make him the right choice for Sheriff. Gay or not, a person's personal life shouldn't matter, Wile's is still a prick!!!

Lol, oh independent I am sorry for having offended you. You appear so compassionate about your feeling towards Rich one can only assume you may be his current twenty something boy toy? Making statements like "Wiles is tough on crime and that is all that matters" is about the stupidest thing I have ever heard and it demonstrates your understanding of liability. I appreciate and understand the need for an agressive stance on criminals, but when you begin to look at ways to cut legal corners and circumvent the checks and balances of the legal system you put the government entity at risk of litigation ... who pays for that defense? Taxpayers do, and I pay taxes.
Wiles is your typical politician. So he marries and has two kids only to realize that he is gay. Hmmm, I have a lot of gay friends and they have all said they knew what orientation they were at puberty (genetics?). But we all know that Richard would not fit in (or promote)if he where out of the closet so he lived a lie. Then he becomes a gay club regular and is dating guys just a few years older than his teenage daughter. He keeps his boyfriends secret and makes sure that it is understood that in public they keep the relationship hidden. Last month www.elpasoinc.com asked him about his sexuality and he replied "I am, who I am" lol, I'll tell you what you are, you are a control freak who lived life as a liar and is attracted to guys that are old enough to be your children. Honesty is imperative to the position of Sheriff, Richard has not been honest in his personal life and God only knows what he has done while being a police officer.
Wait a minute. how can you say that he has not been honest. Hes already out. you obviously know that you homophobic twerp. Thats sounds pretty honest to me.

Don't speak for the Sheriff's Deputies, as far as I can tell only a few don't want any bible thumpers. There's nothing wrong with having good morals, the scary thing is having someone in office that doesn't have any morals. What some of these Deputies don't realize is that any Sheriff that comes in is going to have his own inner circle. It's hard, if not impossible, to totaly get rid of the good ol' boy system. The reason they don't want Wilkins is not because he's a bible thumper, but because they know what kind of a manager he is.

You know Richard thought he had this election in the bag! His big contributors supporting him. He spent his last year as Chief doing favors for everyone he could think of, so they'd owe him at election time. Now he's running kind of scared...it's not in the bag like he thought! He's got all his buddies writing in trying to defend him, but the truth is most of these blogs are true and he and his buddies know it. He's just scared its all going public for all to see. Well, let's see, will Richard show up to answer the hard questions when the time comes, or will he only be there when he "knows" what questions are going to be asked? I suspect, he'll be a NO SHOW when the questions get tough...right Richard..you know what I'm talking about.

If he were scared that it "would all come out" he would have remained EPPD Chief and not run for sheriff. DUH!

Dave,

Looks like he'll hire you as part of his team, your about as stupid as he is. Somebody's gotta be Richards biotch...sounds like your the man for the job! You might not want to handle his calendar since you can even figure out what year it is, but I'm sure there are other things he'd prefer you "handle".

nobody has been fired by him, but I think "Stupid" is still pissed because Wiles left him.
