Here are some VERY IMPORTANT questions to ask of a certain candidate for Schoharie County Sheriff:
1) Have you ever been ARRESTED for a sex crime during the course of your employment with the Sheriff's Office?
2) Have you ever been involved in and/or have your actions been responsible for a lawsuit resulting in a monetary settletment or settlements being paid to the claimant during the course of your employment with the Sheriff's Office?
3) Did you ever attend and unsuccessfully complete NYS Police Firearms Instructor School due to gross negligence / safety violations ( possibly for discharging a live round in classroom environment, thus endangering everyone in classroom )
**NOTE**
candidate Larry Travis has never worked for the Sheriff's Office. current sheriff and candidate Anthony Desmond has never attended firearms instructor school and not passed, nor has he been arrested or charged with any crime, nor have his actions been responsible for any lawsuit(s) and/or settlement(s).
The TRUTH may surpise you. Please be INFORMED before you cast your vote!

So what I am reading is someone who does not care for this unnamed, but really named since the other two have been named, candidate is winning.

Good for him and for him staying above this type of behavior.

I wish I could vote in your County, unnamed would have my vote. He must be doing something right to make you this mean.

Duh, you have no say posting from Millsboro, DE and Liz from Coxsackie. This is Schoharie County. Both Desmond and Ethington have no business being Sheriff for our county. Desmond has no control over his employees and Ethington caters to those who will vote for him. I never took Travis as a serious contender but have rethought my stance.

So if I understand this correctly, one of the candidates has been charged with a sex crime, is a loose cannon and at best, incompetent. His wife is under investigation for abuse by the county and is still running the county's HR by intimidation and political hi jinx. What an amazing pair! What is not to love? Fortunately there are two other good candidates so we don't become laughing stock.

The candidate with all the signs around the county would be a great community organizer. He's done a great job with t-shirts and ball caps for voters that have no clue what he stands for. Everything written above is true. He also mistakenly called the wrong phone number to keep the wife of a fellow deputy from getting a job. The message was left on the phone of another police officer. It can be heard on youtube. How is he going to supervise someone he's backstabbed. He has no integrity, no supervisory experience, and he has not shown any desire until now to go further up the ladder in his law enforcement career. The only candidates with experience are Travis and Desmond. Desmond's problem is he doesn't know whether he is a Republican or a Democrat. He will go with anybody that will nominate him. His other problem is he will not enforce the Safe Act. Let me say as a hunter I don't agree with all of the Safe Act but as a career lawman Desmond took an oath to enforce the laws of this country and state. He doesn't get to pick and choose which laws to enforce. The biggest complaint the gun lobby has is that they say we already have tough gun laws but they are not enforced. Desmond and cops like him are the reason why those laws don't work. Time to retire Tony!
Larry Travis by far has the experience and the most integrity of the three candidates. I've known him for more than 30 years and I can tell you he's a class act!

I don't trust Larry Travis because of his tv commercial. The ad acts like he walks the streets on patrol, which he does not. That ad is deceptive.

Also, i can make my IP say i'm from Millsboro, DE or anywhere i want. It's one of the joys of being Anon.

Duh, you are right Larry has never walked a beat in Cobleskill during his whole time being an officer, so that does make him a lying deceptive moron....Desmond is just hyped up to get re-elected anyway he can....Ethington gets my vote

vote for Desmond he's been serving our county for a number of years, and most Sharon Springs voters think he is the obvious choice, see the site

Election over. Desmond wins. I strongly suspect his stand to support the Second Ammendment played a big part. He seems a person of integrity. I hope he can continue to do a good job.
