I thought he was going to save us a lot of money and do away with the sheriffs dept?

Thank you again Deval.

Oh and way to go filling it with an impartial person, NOT.

There should be a full disclosure on how many former state legislators are now working in state government.

The lemmings in this state deserve everything they get. They voted this clown back into office and didn't get it the first time around. Hey Deval you don't need a Ford to get around in, you needed a more expensive Cadillac. Hey Deval you didn't need those drapes that were already up, you needed to spend 40,000.00 on new ones. The thing that's sad is the rest of us who don't vote liberal and are stuck in a state where the lemmings can't use their brains to figure out what's the best for this state, we have to suffer because the lemmings outnumber us. The moron's in this state continue to vote the party, because that's what you're suppose to do in the liberal lemming state. Blindly follow the leader lemming. And there you have it folks, after a nationwide search, a replacement sheriff has been found.He's a career political hack as usual.

Another Rep. to take the Sheriff's Office,NICE. Nothing is going to change at the MSO. This guy will learn from the mistakes of Honest John and the Godfather Jim,on how they got caught,so he won't. All Capt's and above,did you find out who's going to take the money NOW? Same old,same old,here in Middlesex.

I am not sure how anyone thinks this is a good idea. What experience does Koutoujian have with creating a budget? What does he know about running a prison system and working with inmates? They should have promoted someone who works day to day and deserves the promotion.

I wonder if this guy will question some of the jobs in the Health Services Unit that were never posted. They were only for "special" friends

Of course this is not a good idea. Not much Deval does is a good idea for the whole only for some certain chosen few.
