Yup I'm a shucmk and a douche bag, but I see a guy with no integrity. Instead of fixing the problem he hid the problem in his own house. I smell a liar from accross the room!

Wow this is such a nasty site taking shots at political candidates and their families. Is the Sheriff's race that big of a deal?

Sad part is, the guy who lost his wife isn't even running for anything. Just low class and no character.

The Sheriff is the highest ranking law enforcement officer in Cecil County. It was sad to see Cecil county in the top two counties for drug use/overdose in Maryland. This should be a huge eye opener to the people of our county. The Sheriff is ultimately responsible for this newsworthy ranking. The Sheriff engages the local law enforcement departments and the court system to discourage offenders. We have never had a Sheriff that focused on the immediate problems in our county. This position is for show. The municipal departments should be re-categorized as security guards that are always too late to the crime, if they even show.
Cecil County needs a Sheriff who will motivate the law enforcement community and make our county the last place any criminal wants to visit. I am not impressed with any of the candidates listed thus far. All political promises pushed aside, what are they really capable of achieving?

someone writes the truth and all of the morons can't think of a reply. Where are you when it's time to stick with facts? I am not wondering where the bags of hot air are these days, I'm wondering where the right candidate is hiding.

This isn't a small town county any more, and its population is growing everyday. I want to hear what the sheriff will do to get rid of the good ol'boy standards and views. How they will defeat the corruption in side the department. What kind of pressure will they put on the courts to get stronger punishments for offenders and repeat offenders. It's not an effective department if you arrest someone for a crime time after time and they get charges dropped or (nolle pros?) every time. And the waste of plea deals needs to stop, pressure the states attorneys office to follow thru and use are tax money to do their jobs and go thur a full trial prepared and ready! Instead of give a weak easy plea that they no a guilty criminal wont turn Down. How will each of you do this?

All politicians claim they are going to do that. When it gets down to it they just want the job.

C'mon man- tell us how ANY Sheriff could possibly influence the amount of plea negotiations in criminal cases. The ONLY way this would be remotely possible is if the Sheriff STOPPED arresting people. This way would give the SAO more time to try cases. Simply put, the real reason why people plea out is because there are more cases than S.A.'s, judges, and public defenders to try these cases. It is a necessary evil in every court system in the country. Get real genius.

The Sheriff and the SAO can support a zero tolerance verdict. Have you watched the judicial system in action? Everyone sits around and waits. The judge rambles out when he feels its time and takes a blink to review the case. The public defender reviews the case seconds before with the defendant. The SA fixes the buttons on his suit and chats with the bailiff/deputies and within minutes there is a bargain on the table and PBJ for the repeat offender. "I robbed the woman at gun point because I am a drug addict" and "I started methadone yesterday".
It's a joke! The Sheriff has the capability of getting the system to stand firm against these offenders. Send a few down the road and see how fast word gets around. There seems to be a misconception of who runs our law enforcement agencies in Cecil County. It's time for the voters to recruit a firm leader.

Exactly my point. Too many cases, not enough court personnel to handle this work load. And if you honestly think that an elected sheriff can do anything about that, you are naive.

Yeah. You missed it. They are too busy socializing and showing up whenever. They need to step it up and stop playing games. You are naive to think that the Sheriff and SA can't coordinate. I bet you can't see the match of peanut butter and jelly either.

Never said they can't coordinate. Just can't do it.
I can see it now. The new Sheriff talks to the S.A. "Hey Ellis, can you stop plea bargaining cases and start trying all of the criminal cases, you know,by either trial Judge or jury?" "Sure Sheriff. We'll have to cancel all the civil cases, divorce cases, non support cases, drug court and start our criminal docket every morning at 5AM and work until midnight- Mon-Sat. On Sundays, we'll knock off at 5PM". Sheriff replies: "You the man."

How about we turn our backs on the drug problem? Send invitations to the dealers and the users, this would be the perfect county to settle in. Why don't we get billboards to announce that we support them and award them by keeping them out of jail?

Are you a dealer? Or a user? Anyone else would be insisting action by the Sheriff and the SA. Enabling the drug problem with excuses and meth clinics is making Cecil County the eye sore of Maryland.

No. I'm not a dealer. Or user. Just a 33 year veteran law enforcement officer.
You know, you don't make alot of sense.Perhaps you have the problem.
