Garry won yes but the better man lost cause people are misinformed. Garry will run the department like Sam. Deputies will still not write tickets, run radar, work accidents, write DWI...they rely on the Highway patrol to do all that so what do they do........sit in Henrietta and leave the county uncovered so more thefts happen. Everyday there are more and more breaking and entering reports wrote. The officers need to do what a officer is suppose to do. ENFORCE THE MISSOURI LAWS not rely on Highway Patrol. I hope it changes but Garry isn't educated enough to make those changes. Oh well 4 years everyone will see that and then the changes will happen.....just wait and see. When your waiting make sure to lock your doors, load your gun, and enforce the laws yourself cause the Sheriff isn't going to do it!

Can someone please tell me what it is that they do? They don't work traffic, they don't respond for a stand by, they don't do DWI enforcement, they don't answer animal calls, they don't go out on medical calls with irate people. Listen to the scanner. You will hear them being given calls but never responding. Feeling real good about ray county right now.....

They complain about responding to anything. They take forever to get anywhere but henrietta. They don't want to push and investigate cause one of there "buddies" might be involved. Listen on the scanner how many times they don't respond or they ask why they are needed..........it doesn't matter someone asked for your assistance so go! They say there short on man power but in fact they are sitting at the jail, annex, or other office that they don't need. They need 1 office and thats it and the deputies shouldn't be there they need to be on the road patroling the streets. Hire a jailer that is a deputy by closing the annex and premium satelight tv down!

Mr. Bertrand and his supporters: I would like to thank you for proving to the community that slamming, bashing and etc does not work. That strong family and community support, honesty and integrity prevail. I guess I misunderstood when I had seen Mr. Bertrand posted on his site about his strong Christan values, doesn't seem to be very Christan to put out false information about someone. I know for a fact NONE of the BUSH clan slammed or said anything against Mr. Bertrand.
THE BEST MAN WON!

You know nothing, Bush will probably be a good sheriff, but to say that some of the Bush clan did not lie
and bash Bertrand in B.S. they started rumors that his son was in prison, they suggested he was under mental health care, they said he was nothing more than a bookeeper and lied about his work history. I don't believe Bertrand put out any false information, your making that up.

Below is the Statute on nepotism. I'm not sure it qualifies since garry didn't hire brian.

Penalty for nepotism.
Section 6. Any public officer or employee in this state who by virtue of his office or employment names or appoints to public office or employment any relative within the fourth degree, by consanguinity or affinity, shall thereby forfeit his office or employment.

Source: Const. of 1875, Art. XIV, 13 (as adopted Feb. 26, 1924).
(1964) Acts of officer will not be declared invalid until question of forfeiture has been judicially determined. State v. King (Mo.), 379 S.W.2d 522.

(1967) A county court judge is a "public officer" within the meaning of this section of the constitution. State ex rel. Stephens v. Fletchell (Mo.), 412 S.W.2d 423.

(1976) When sheriff appointed his wife's uncle as deputy sheriff in violation of the constitutional provision which is self-enforcing, he forfeited his office and quo warranto was an appropriate remedy to enforce the resulting forfeiture. State ex Inf. Roberts v. Buckley (Mo.), 533 S.W.2d 551.

(1994) Although other county commissioners cast sufficient number of votes to assure appointment, when presiding commissioner of county participated in appointment process by voting for the appointment of presiding commissioner's sister-in- law as trustee of county board (a nonpaying position), appointment violated an antinepotism provision of constitution. State ex inf. Attorney General v. Shull, 887 S.W.2d 397 (Mo. en banc).
Just be careful

He has to re hire him. whether sam hired him first or not. its consider a rehire. the judge, the county and state better pay close attention on this. no matter how u cut it, its nepatism.

In this small town pretty much everyone I know got their job because of who they know not what they know. Is this right? Of course not! However life is not fair. Even if his brother is not kept on they will just hire another "friend" without a blood tie- whats the difference?

Maybe the next guy wouldn't be such an a$$h)le as Brian. But anyone who thinks Garry will get rid of Brian is nuts. Brian is the one who is in charge there, no Clemens and not Garry. He isn't going anywhere, no matter what the law says. Who would enforce the law, a Ray County judge???? Not a chance!

Well then lets see who calls the state to enforce the nepotism clause......I bet you not one single person in the county will cause of the back stabbing and crooked sheriff's office we have in managment.
Someone prove me wrong PLEASE if you know what needs to be done. There is so much stealing and crooked things going on in this county and they won't help anyone do anything about it. Its better to smile and walk away so nobody gets mad at them. If they enforce the law then they may not get voted for again.
When the commissioners, sheriff, under sheriff, and over half the county government are all in on the scam who's left to enforce anything????

Contact the Attorney generals Office to lodge a complaint. Missouri's nepotism laws are very vague and weak. Doubtful there can be anything done.
