Mark is a man of integrity, he also spent time with the deputies on the job, attended trooper school and spent time in jail just to experience it , no other has done this .

Re-elect Sheriff Curran is my opinoin! He is fair but does draw a hard line between right and wrong (and that is what we need in Lake County).

I don't see the benefit of the sheriff spending time in the jail to the law biding citizens. Is he planning to break the law? Is he trying to win the criminals votes? Is he trying to get the town drunks votes as they tend to spend time in jail?

I'm just a regular voter and called both with the exact same questions about ther efforts to reduce drunk drivers and unwanted noise. Mark wanted me to go find what I was asking in news paper articles and quoted some statistic. It felt as he was bothered that the regular person would call him. The call with Douglas Roberts was a much better experience. He has a great stance against drunk drivers and noise issues with good ideas to back them. Overall it felt as he cared about making a difference. I usually vote republican but let's face it Mark Curran shouldn't be on the republican ticket. Who knows what party the voices in his head will tell him to belong to next. Douglas has my vote.

For all you chain o lakes boaters, the LCS office (run by Mark Curran) is pushing for a $30 per boat public safety fee. See the FWA meeting minutes at the for 8/16/2010 if you don't believe me.
Doug Roberts is the best choice for LCS.

"The only good choice!" posts are BS. Let us know why you think that? It is a fact that Mark Curran is a flip flopper. At best he is a liar at worst he is a nut job as Mark indiated that god told him to run as a republican. Does anyone really believe that god cares if he or anyone else is a republican or democrat?

Doug is a better choice for lake county. He is right for the job, and he also seem to care more about the county. We need some one that will help our county. We need good Officers and Deputies, we need the ones that worked hard and are that qualified to get thoes jobs. We don't need the ones that got the job cos they know some one or are related to some one. If Doug gets elected he will hire people for what they know, and not for who they know. That alone has my vote already. Lets end county politics vote Doug Roberts, and help Lake County be a better place.

I want to know which, if any, of the two men running has stated "The Sheriffs Department and local Police forces should be used to serve and protect the public and should NOT be used as armed thugs generating revenue for towns and the county through pointless ticketing and maximun enforcement of vague traffic laws"

Any of the two ever say anything along these lines? Because that is the one that gets my vote.

Democrat policies over Republican rhetoric.
