There is no way Lew should be paid 50k a year more than Foley, period. He was an Assistant District Atty.for a short stint, there's a big difference. Foley will save the state over 300k over the 6 year term and he is light years ahead of Lew in qualifications.

Alot of people with disabilities perform just as good or better than those with no abnormalties.
Colonel Foley is head and shoulders above any sheriff candidate in the state. Look at his accomplishments and tell me he can't do the job!!
Go get 'em Colonel.

Really??? He makes NO PROMISES?? Not even "I'll do my best to serve our state"?? Not even "I'll fight CRIME"??? Okay - I'm being sarcastic but I'd really like to hear something of substance rather than the new way of getting elected - attractive sound bites geared to catch your attention but have nothing behind them. Illegal immigrants are bad!! Yeah, no fooling - but what are you going to DO about them? HOW are you going to deport them before their sentences? HOW are you going to pay for it? And based on his limited criminal justice background, especially since he hasn't been on the street, I don't see how he's more qualified then Col. Foley.

Hey that's a great new name for Lew, "Sound bite". Who was the politician they used to call "Photo op"? How can a guy who's had one employee and zero management background be more qualified than Foley? I don't think so....

It appears the rumors that Bove sold out to Lew a couple of weeks back are true.

Bove, Beshai and Duddie are now behind Lew, now that's a foursome. Scot has taken care of himself and thrown his co-workers under the bus.

The word is that Lew has struck a deal with Glodis that allows him to stay on another 18 months so he's able to qualify for his pension.

Are Foley supporters that scared that they have to rely on lies to try and gain support for their candidate. Those of that know Lew, know that these "facts" that you are spouting are not even close. As for Bove supporting Lew, maybe he realized that Lew is a stand up guy and will do the right thing for the Sherriff's Office and for Worcester County.

The same old game is Lew saying anything and everything to get elected, like "he is going to deport illegal immigrants..." He has ABSOLUTELY NO power or authority to do any such thing...

Thats politics for you.. blowin' smoke

We were told bove had met with big bird and sold out to him weeks ago and we lost respect for him for selling us out. We will not support big bird and we are supporting FOLEY all the way. Hes the stand up guy.

Lew's just another stepping stone candidate, we don't need another. I'll take Foley, the most qualified person by far.

Lew gets my vote. He is an smart, energetic leader. I like his ideas on putting more inmates to work and making the prison "Green". He wan't to get rid of corrution in the sheriff's office. He is a breath of fresh air and will take us in a new direction. Foley is just more of the same. Do honestly expect a person who is abusing the system to do any different if he gets elected? He will just put more of his freinds into jobs so they can get a lifetime pension on us. All while we pay Foley twice. Vote for Lew!!

As I just said in another post about "Lew" the only way for the jail to go green is build a new one, period. The original section is to old and the newer section (the Mods) is built like dung. You say he is a "breath of fresh air" what planet are you on. He is a lawyer with a little experiance as a state rep, big deal. He has no managment experiance, no law enforcement experiance ( an ADA doesn't come close) He's no different than Glodis.

If Baker or Cahill get in, he will be able to because they will sign the MOA with Immigration to give local law enforcement the authority to do that. If Patrick gets back in, you are correct. He will continue down the same old road of giving illegal aliens taxpayer funded benefits and let them get away with staying in our sanctuary state.

I know for a fact what I am talking about. And, Glodis could have been re-elected as many times as he wanted for Sheriff. Again, why would you elect someone who is ready and willing to abuse the system? It makes no sense. Lew is a hardworking, respected, and smart guy. Lew is moving on because he wants a new challenge. He has a lot of new and interesting ideas for the Sheriffs office. Including running a drug education program for our schools. Foley is just another old boy democrat. I think people have had enough abuse of the system. Say no to more of the same and VOTE FOR LEW!!

The Sheriff’s office is NOT a political position. This is about ridding part of our government of corruption. Foley is trying to Double Dip. That's what you should be worried about. Who cares if Lew has served a measly two terms as a State Rep. That in no way makes him career politician. Foley wants to sit at a desk and become the highest paid state employee. Then he wants to bring in his friends and family to run the department. Then they all go on their merry way with 80% pensions. All of this on us – the tax payer. Dump Foley now while you still have the chance. YOU people just don’t seem to get it. Foley must be giving you a job by the way you are talking. Not on my watch.

Lew had better come up with something better than his cutsy spins, what he's spinning is costly and not possible.

Glodis and Lew come from the same political sperm, all talk. Lew is saying the same things that Glodis did when he ran for Sheriff. Yada, Yada, yada, blah. blah blah. Same poop, different person
