Folks if the comments seem like inside baseball stuff, it's because the candidates' surrogates are the authors. For instance, Feltcher's people are all uptight because Grace Kelly took their pictures when they came up and played "lobbyist in uniform" at a senate hearing. The shot at Goodman is for her seemingly ADHD inspired work history. Bostrom frightens Fletcher so his Tolson Brigade will take any shot they can. The Tolson Brigade stands to lose a lot of Feltcher comes in second, so expect this sort of thing to continue.

Fletcher needs to step down. Why don't all the citizens of Shoreview look at all the money wasted by the Sheriff's office, that we are paying for. Fletcher claims that he was so great at the RNC! Let's be real! The gang strike force he claimed to no nothing about and tried to blame it all on Cindy the Admin. Assistant., His buddies that were stealing from the citizens, now doing prison time. The 100 or so take home squads that we are paying for as citizens. While other departments are forced to make cuts, Good old Bob is still buying new vehicles for his boys and hiring his friends. Let's see all this must still be Cindy's fault!! The Sheriff Department needs a change and that change needs to be Matt B.

I had to laugh after reading Laura Goodman's response..... Ms.Goodman until you work in the capacity as a "police officer" with a department for more than 4 years your comments might have some validity. Until then please keep your mouth shut and go away.
Minneapolis Police Department 1985-1992 Officer, Sgt, Acting Lt., what's your point?

Sorry, it is time for change. Fletcher is disliked by many and am sure you know that if you are in Law Enforcement.

There was a desktop computer setup in the corner of the room for those wishing to blog on topix or communicate with Naylon & Rehak via chat line from Federal prison. What a wonderful evening. The rebirth of corruption has begun.

You gave a great speech tonight sheriff! You had a great turnout this evening. It was great to see that countless deputies and SPPD officers showed up to support you too. I'll be in touch with your campaign to see if you need any volunteers!
Oh, and the food was delicious.
Why? Are you or your kid looking for a job or take home car?

Yes that was Grace the one in the stretch pants. I think she even snuck a couple of biscuits and chicken wings before snapping pictures for her to take back to the Bostrom camp
The fletcher backers show thier true colors. They continue to defame and curse all those who oppose the Sheriff. I think Fletcher's leadership is reflected in those surrounding him, the prove is on this blog and in the media. What are the real issues related to the Sheriff's Office?
The mud is in the challengers corners. If someone truely wants Fletcher defeated they will reveal the same tatic that his followers employ.

I agree! Further more, call down to the Jail, I will bet a kid of an FOB is working there. It's like a family tree with no branches!

How do you know that there were a lot of Deputies and SPPD officers? Did they have their uniforms on? Did they drive their take home cars their? Or, maybe you are one of Fletcher's henchmen(lacky)so you know who's who. If you are, you are gutless. Put your name on this post. Heck, you support the Don Corleone of Ramsey County-he won't touch you!

Non-partisan is the kind of Sheriff we need. Just this week Senator Mee Moua at the last minute snuck an anti Law Enforcement paragraph into a bill ordering that cops cannot track gang members. Then when cops from St. Paul and Minneapolis went to speak out against it. Moua called the boss and pulled the party line thus the cops were ordered to stay away from the capital by the police department democratic administrations. Cops called Sheriff Fletcher to go since he was not controlled by the party. Funny how silent the two partisan democratic Sheriff candidates are on this huge issue, but then the party has ordered them to keep their mouth shut.
Don't be so naive as to think that Fletcher would not take an endorsement from either party, if he could get one. He can't, no party wants to be connected to this guy based on his history. Heck, I doubt the SPPD Federation is even going to support him this year. All Bob has is the Teamsters!

When is Fletcher going to announce his candidacy for governor? He should share his expertise with police state tactics to the entire state!

The silly people that have been disciplined or beat in an eletction like Tony bennett, J Moore, B. Finney by Sheriff Fletcher continue to post a seemingly pro Sheriff Fletcher but rude comment, then they post an attack on the rude comment they just posted. Get over it boys. You lost, your likes are not wanted. The citizens of Ramsey County are not stupid. They like Fletcher and keep him as Sheriff.

How much did you donate or where in the Department does your kid work? What color is your take home car? If Finney would have even tried, there would be no Fletcher right now! The buck stops here-So Long Bobby Boy!

Oh, did I strike a nerve? Is the Fletcher camp scared of what buddy Marky and Rehak may say? Oh wait a minute, Bob's own IA cleared them of any wrong doing. You convinced me! I will lobby to FREE MARK NAYLON AND TIM REHAK-THEY WERE CLEARED BY THE BIG MAN HIMSELF!

So Dr. Bostrom's spokesman quickly attacks the Sheriff on a simple re-election kick-off....

.......but has yet to talk about his co-chairs effort to help gang members?

...and what's the deal on a having "spokesman" talk for you, anyway?
