The real top story

Hayward, CA

The top story was the defeat of a 15 year Sheriff by a less than two year deputy.
Rodney Mitchell was a deputy since the 1980's. He was the Sheriff for 15 years and believed he was the best. He built a ring of GOB's and even had a Board of Supervisor in his pocket. Twisting tales in handling of the Dinius case and an out of control Garzoli proved Mitchell was not a good Sheriff.
Along comes a newly hired deputy with only a few years with SFPD over 15 years ago. Mitchell picked a fight with the wrong person. Rivero, with less than 2 years as a LCSO deputy, defeated Mitchell in the Primary and the run off.

Lets face it, if Rivero is not what we wanted, it least 15 years of Mitchell's ego infested GOB's has been put to rest. Cecli Brown was chased out of town, Garzoli was publicly slammed after years of his bullying and Perdock will never carry a badge again.

Sheriff Mitchell had nothing to do with the Dinius/Perdock boat crash nor with the ensuing trial, but please don't confuse me with facts.

When the Lake County Deputy Sheriffs Supported Mitchell 44 to 0.
That is a strong message of we talk you listen.
The voters did not speak once but twice on the issue.
Now Rivero is in one term Okay, two terms Maybe, three terms No Way.
We have seen what a third term has bought on and in house pecking order. A Good Old Boys Club.
Huh

Two years may be too much. My guess is two months will tell the tale.
Happy 2011

Hope against hope that this new year will bring better things for all of us. The economic crisis has destroyed many livelihoods, and life as we knew it. Less optimistic than usual, but certainly trying to maintain a hopeful attitude. Good health, happiness, prosperity and gratitude to you all.

Thanks for bringing that back up. I keep asking do we really only have 44 deputies to patrol this large county 24/7/365? No one has been willing to answer, at least not before the election. Well, that's over and done with so will someone please just answer yes or no - do we really only have 44 deputies?

the number of people who could have voted in the DSA was 64, give or take one. So there were a quite a few sitting on the fence in spite of intense pressure to back their boss, just 44 votes is actually a failure when you look at it in the correct context.

Thanks Phil - knew there was a reason no one wanted to answer that. I can see why they wouldn't want to answer that before the election. Didn't work out quite they way they intended. Left me feeling we were grossly understaffed - another reason for the status quo to go.

nice spin. But a pass on the vote would have brought the same problems to the non voter.
The proof is in the pudding. We will soon see what the "confidence" factor truly is.

Yeah and you live in a dream.
Mitchell did not secure the computer from Perdock.
Mitchell did not stop Perdock from gaining access to the on going investigation.
Mitchell allowed a mechanic access to evidence without the DA's knowledge.
Mitchell harassed witnesses.
Mitchell did not call for an outside agency to assist until 3 days later.
Mitchell talked to Perdock about the case even during the investigation was active.
Mitchell interviewed Perdock at the scene but did write a report on what Perdock said.
Mitchell should have at least had the DA's Investigators control the crime scene.

Congrats to all that have won the election. Big changes coming down the pike, positive innovative changes for the betterment of the County of Lake and it's citizens.

Through the face of extreme adversity, deciet, slander, libel, illegal actions, Sheriff Frank Rivero won. Thank God the community was paying attention.

Even though there were those that tried to smear the character of Don Anderson, he also won position of DA.

Olga Steele, manager of both campaigns did an amazing job!

It's an honor to have met these fine people, thankfull for all their very hard work!
Great day

Today's swearing in ceremony was so fantastic. The room was packed, people lined up outside the door. A wonderful tribute to our new Sheriff, Frank Rivero and our new DA, Don Anderson!
