I don't think I was being rude. I really do think the person is going to develop ulcers and high blood pressure. Look above, he/she responded twice to my one remark warning him/her of his/her health.

He/she will eventually get over Snead having his butt handed to him in the election. If Snead hadn't been so arrogant, not hired Cox, not assumed he had the job in his back pocket, and had a better campaign manager he could have won.

Way I see it Haas lost it for snead, he distanced himself so much from the people of greene snead didnt have a chance. So we can only wait and see now how good smith is going to turn out. Four years and he will retire, he will have a great income total for retirement and im sure this was his plan was all along, but time will only tell

I'm sure this was part of Snead's game plan too of course. Most people runing for the office of sheriff do so to enhance their retirement benefits or create a 2nd monthly retirement check. Look at all the state troopers retiring and running for sheriff, they create a 2nd retirement check for themselves. 99% of the population has no idea of a person's motive when the person is running for sheriff.

I can list 25 examples off the top of my head where a sheriff has either enhanced their retirement benefits or created a 2nd monthly retirement check. It's so easy to pull the wool over the public's eyes. They're just plain uninformed.

Do you mean a sheriffs retirement is different or a second type of retirement on top of the VRS deputys get?
If so dang, I need to run in four years
ps, im not being sarcastic im for real i thought there retirement would be based on the VRS they got as deputys

Retirement is based upon the highest three years of salary in most systems. For the next four years Smith's salary will be larger than it was while he was employed in Albemarle.

Some sheriffs have it even better. Like Harding in Albemarle County. He retired from the city and will get a city retirement check. The city isn't on the state retirement system. Upon retiring in Albemarle County, he will also get a county retirement check in addition to his city retirement check.

If a state trooper serves 25 years and retires, and then he runs for sheriff in the City of Charlottesville, he is vested in the city retirement plan after 5 years. He will be getting a state retirement check and a city retirement check.

If the same retired trooper runs for sheriff in Albemarle County, I am assuming his higher salary as sheriff will increase his state retirement check.

It's all a game to see who can make the most money and milk the retirement systems the most. Can we blame them? More power to them!
