Should Sheriff John Rutherford be elected in 2011 for a 3rd term?
1. Yes- I want to ignore that Jax has had the highest crime rate in Florida for John Rutherford’s term.
2. Yes- I want to ignore that Sheriff Rutherford is DOUBLE-DIPPING collecting BOTH a paycheck as Sheriff and a CITY PENSION while the TAXPAYERS are suffering in this economy.“Each year he gets more than $108,000 from the pension fund. And that's just his city pension. As sheriff, he is also currently being paid, on top of his pension,$157,000 a year in salary.”
3. Yes- I want to ignore that Sheriff John Rutherford is sued for constant mistakes as Sheriff and TAXPAYERS quietly pay TAXPAYER money to settle his mistakes.
4. Yes- I want to ignore that Sheriff John Rutherford takes gifts and / or trips but don’t report them as required by law.
5. Yes- I like the fact that Sheriff John Rutherford secretly deploys detectives to conduct surveillance on TEA PARTY and PRO LIFE Rallies while ignoring radical organizations for political correctness.
(source within JSO Intelligence Unit cannot be revealed)
6. Yes- I like the fact that Sheriff John Rutherford waste TAXPAYER money (Estimated $400,000.00) by firing Officers for telling jokes while keeping Officers who use excessive force on the public.
See who Sheriff John Rutherford fires for telling jokes.
See who Sheriff John Rutherford retains after that Officer uses excessive force, and falsely arrest his neighbor.
7. No- I want to get back on the right track.

This is the best article about Sheriff John Rutherford that I have seen.

Sheriff John Rutherford has a 10 point plan... well what has he been doing the last 8 years? Why in the heck has Sheriff John Rutherford not completed his 10 point plan in 8 years (too many unreported vacations)?

A queer point of concern is that Sheriff John Rutherford's 10- point plan for his new campaign looks like the same 10- point plan from 8 years ago. To see the old 10 point plan go to; (sheriff) then compair it with the new plan.

What is going on? Is Sheriff John Rutherford so out of it that he can't come up with any new ideas? If that was Sheriff John Rutherford's plan 8 years ago then why has he not yet accomplished it? How many more terms will he want to accomplish it?

In lookin I also found the following;

Sheriff John Rutherford must go!!!

Sheriff John Rutherford has failed both our city and the republican party. John Rutherford brags about crime being down but fails to acknowledge the FACT

that Jacksonville has the highest crime rate of any Florida city.

How is this possible? Simple, John Rutherford has delivered to Jacksonville the worst performance in the state for 8 years but overall crime is down

statewide. John Rutherford still has the worst performance in the state. He is like the dysfunctional child sitting in the corner with the dunce hat on

saying "I,m doing better".

Sheriff John Rutherford and his agency stood by and did nothing while a young Jacksonville woman was abducted and brutally murdered. Sheriff John

Rutherford's team ignored an eyewitness' 911 call. The witness pleaded desperately for John Rutherford's officers to save this woman as he followed the van

(calling 911) with the woman still alive inside. Sheriff John Rutherford's Officers failed to respond and as a result the young woman was murdered.

Amazingly Sheriff John Rutherford defended this sloppy incompetent police work.- -

Sheriff John Rutherford's Campaign website calls his agency "properly deployed and skillfully managed". In this case Sheriff John Rutherford's performance

should be characterized as "not deployed or managed at all". Unfortuntely Sheriff John Rutherford's lack of performance in managing officers resulted in the

death of a young woman.

For Sheriff John Rutherford to brandish this slogan is insulting to Jacksonville and clearly propaganda.

Suspecting that the website contained pure propaganda I looked at his "10-Point Agenda for Excellence". I was amazed to see that this is the EXACT SAME "10-

Point Agenda for Excellence" that Sheriff John Rutherford rolled out in 2003 when he first ran for Sheriff (8 years ago)! Why has Sheriff John Rutherford not

accomplished this "10-Point Agenda for Excellence" in 8 years?(For 2003 see )
