Just after 1 a.m. Wednesday, surrounded by his supporters who waited for the last of the ballots to be counted by the Voter Registrar, Frank Rivero made this announcement. Full Story

All the hard work paid off because you dealt with the issues, put out your plan for improving and restoring not only the faith of the citizens, but bringing integrity back to Law Enforcement Lake Co.

Your resolve and commitment during this malicious campaign was admirable and honorable.

Thanks Francisco Rivero!

When is Frank going to encourage his "followers" to stop the attacks? He claims to be the "answer" to Lake County, well it's time for him to prove it. Frank, instead of encouraging devisiveness encourage unity. Will you ever denounce the Sheriff Mitchell Watch website that works so hard to tear down the honorable men and women you want to lead? You think your hard work is done because yo won the war. I believe your hard word is beginning.

What? No one complaining that this letter should have been on the front page?

What? No one saying anything about the fact that the sheriff-coroner ELECT did not write his own letter to the people?

Does this mean the campaign manager is going to work for the sheriff's in the capacity of public relations?
yea right

Depends on what you mean by "back to work".
It sounds like you mean PAID work......if that is what you are talking about, I think the election was just completed yesterday.

He has been working harder than most (and unpaid) fighting for a needed change.
I am not sure when he will be sworn in to take the new job (that is paid).

My understanding is that he can start at the Sheriff's department after thanksgiving, but still don't know if he will be getting paid for that work, if he hasn't been sworn in to the office yet.

I hope that helps answer your question,.....maybe someone else knows when the official "swearing in" ceremony takes place and if that is actually the time he goes on the payroll.
I don't know, maybe someone else here does.

I thought you believed that God helps those who help themselves?.....

oh well, you brought God into it.....but as usual it seems beliefs are confusing depending on WANTS.

Hey you don't have to LIE anymore, it's a done deal so give it up whiner. A math course is recommended, start with basic addition.

Oh My God. Lake County now has a sheriff who couldn't even pass the sergeant's examination. This is going to be great to watch. Good Job Lake County!
Shame on you

Shame on you Gary, your a sick little man, you should have had front page headlines on this important event. Such a sad display of bias, you and Lake County news displayed during the election, your paper has now lost all credibility. You are receiving numerous calls and e-mails indicating the distaste you have sown into the fabric of the citizens of this county. Gary you ran a fine campaign along with Liz and Lake County News, how sad to see a paper go to such low levels of bias, it will never be the same for both you and Lake County News. I urge all citizens to post e-mails and phone calls directly to the Denver headquarters and directly to Gary, let them know there is no place for this Bias in our county.

Don't worry, there will be a lot of future front page stories about Sheriff Rivero.... "Sheriff Rivero under investigation by the Department of Justice" ... "Sheriff Rivero accused of improper employment practices”… "Sheriff Rivero arrested by the FBI..." Flake County voters, thanks for the entertainment. This is going to be great to watch.

Let's not kid outself. The truth about who lied during the campain will come out. Once Rivero gets rid of the honest administration staff, and replaces them with his people, once Cobb Girl gets her job with the agency, and once your mother starts talking to you again, it will all come out in the headlines. Sheriff Rivero will make National News during his first term. But, I bet it's not good news.
