Vote Sandra Brown for Sheriff

A vote for Sandra Brown will assure us that we are electing a person who is willing to understand the needs of our communities. Perhaps, if Sandra Brown were the County Sheriff, there may not have been all the fatalities in Isla Vista on Saturday May 24, 2014. “The incumbent Sheriff has ignored growing crime in Isla Vista. By refusing to make the changes in the Foot Patrol’s enforcement posture, the lives of our students, full-time residents, and other personnel are at greater risk. As a former Senior Deputy who presided over major reductions in crimes, such as sexual assaults and violent crimes against students, Sandra Brown will take the steps required-in staffing, policy, procedures and community outreach-to make Isla Vista safer,” says the Sandra Brown for Sheriff Campaign documentation.

Sandra Brown is taking on a tremendous challenge running for office against her boss. She is willing to take on this challenge, which is something her colleagues are unwilling to undertake despite knowing that a change is needed in their workplace in order to do the job they signed up to do.

The County Sheriff position is a position that needs to be filled with a person who knows our county’s needs and what to do to make our community safe. Make a difference with your vote and vote for Sandra Brown.
