Well lets see if he keeps his promises he made to his department about demoting and changing things, but heck I think that's the same thing they heard 4 years ago and well you know the out come. A whole lot of empty promises just to get votes it worked but I guess people never learn. Good race Kirkpartick and know alot of us wanted change but a few still wanted the same old nothing. Well let it go down in history for Mata being the worst Sheriff in Kleberg County History had nothing to do with qualifications, skills, etc only because of popularity and not even that. Alot of people don't know the real Mata and if they did he would have never been voted in again. :((((((

Mr. Mata looked very unprofessional on TV when reporters asked him about the warrant backlog of misdemeanor cases.
He used blame shifting (pointed out that someone else was 100% responsible for the delay, and he had nothing to do with it).
The bottom line is that he should not have allowed the warrants to get that backlogged, regardless of whether the officer is under his command. He is the sheriff, and he could have taken steps to repair the problem. This is why it is fundamental to work well with other Kleberg County peace officers.
If Mr. Mata has failed at building good relations with Kleberg County peace officers, then that is his fault, and his fault alone.
He did not serve any of the warrants because he needed their votes to beat Kirkpatrick....

Well 4 more years of free drugs and drug money for mata, I bet if the government started looking into mata's private personal life and his relatives they would be very surprised at what they would find, I know people have seen "Training Day" Denzel is mata in kleberg county and his sheriffs are the rest of Denzels guys from the movie minus ethan hawk

Well we all have seen the other side of the Sheriff the true him and it's far from nice.I would have never believed them, but have seen the other side of him. It's amazing when you hear him on tv/person etc., that he knew nothing that was going on in his department, Isn't he the Sheriff, isn't he the one person that should know whats going on at all times. You people that voted him back into office why would you vote to put him back into office? It's always someone elses fault and someone elses problem to fix and when they try to fix it, guess who interfers and comes up like a good person while the other one that was doing the right thing is the bad person. I take it that our Father in Heaven kept Mata in office to clean up his mess and see if he can keep his promises this time and it wasn't Kirkpatricks responsibility to come in and clean up such a mess, but our Father did show the Sheriff that their is someone far better and wiser that can run that department and get it back to it's glory and has alot of good people in Kleberg County backing him up.

My sister is in dispatch there and she said that they are all looking for new jobs. It's kinda sad when even your own employees didn't vote for you. The man is full of empty promises. I mean they are right next door to the PD and the dispatchers next door make $3 more for doing the same job!!! She said he is like a spoiled child ignoring everything important but constantly issuing dumb orders. 3 of them at least are applying somewhere else

I've told him exactly what I think of him before and he had a dumb founded look on his face. He talks a big game but if you call him out on something he stutters and can't defend himself. Typical politician. All bark and no bite when you call him out on what he knows he's done wrong. Used to he'd blame everything on Tony. Well he's made his own bed now. Hope the recount comes through in Richards favor.

The last tv interview of Ed regarding the warrants backlog spoke volumes about his character.

He blamed everything on others instead of taking charge of the situation and telling tv viewers how he could fix it.

It really doesn't matter what any of us think, he's the Sheriff for the next 4 years and thats that. Telling Mata anything to his face doesn't matter, we have told him whats wrong and the people that are doing wrong in his department but he seems to want and protect them why he wants to keep the ones that aren't any good for his department is beyond me, but I guess keep your enemies close and that's what he's doing. All in all he's a nice man, but trust the wrong people and that's his adminstrative department. Hopefully maybe this 4 years he can stand tall and rid himself of those cock roaches and hire people he can trust and truly earn the respect of the voters that wanted him out. It was his adminstrative and other things that almost cost him the race, but another 4 years of not seeing them in the county but we only have to look down hwy 281 and 141 and you will find them there. There are a few deputies that still patrol the county and thank you for that.

@ yadayada , I agree with you on the first part about Mata being there another four years. But as far as persuading the large number of people who voted against him they including me will never gain my respect. As far as the people who work there I have seen an few of them and some are honest hard working people that just do there job. Iam sure there are a few bad apples but it will be business as usual over there. Remember a leopard never loses its spots. Iam sure when things cool off it it will be the same things over and over! Iam sure mata went out there and prayed on the old and weak minded folks and literally bought off several folks during the election . Everybody knows all the dirty tricks he used to get re elected. Maybe the citizens will get lucky and mata will eventually screw up again and with a little luck maybe he will get indicted.
We should be so lucky

We had our chance to see him indicted over the insurance cover up regarding Sgt Camarillo's sancha wrecking his patrol unit. And our fabulous county judge and commissioners voted to let Ed's office handle the investigation and essentially cover it up. Who knows though, maybe we as tax payers may see another day where we cansee him get indicted for something. After all, we aren't exactly dealing with the brightest brick on the wall, and those goes for him and the idiots he has in higher positions. Keep the hope!

Really people know the person he his and still voted him back to office,everything is true what is said about that department but 4000 and something people wanted that as Sheriff of Kleberg County even if he's ever indicted for his wrong, nothing will change he will still be Sheriff because his famous moto is "I didn't know anything about that" Mata your the Sheriff and you do know everything that goes on, you just can't take responsiblity for your actions!!!!!!!!!! Thank you Kirkpatrick,alot of us wish that the outcome would have been different but Mata's has to clean up that department and it would have not been fair for you to come in and clean up a mess you had nothing to do with. 2012 is known for the great devastation, and well you know the rest of the story
