Not sure how Rob Heckman got promoted from Captain to "Second-in-command" within two years. The "Good-O'l-Boys" Club is alive and well at County Fire. It should be interesting to note that this position opened up and three individuals within the dept. put in for the job. County HR determined that Heckman was not qualified for the position. What did the new Chief do you say? The position was reflown and low and behold Heckman was promoted. Just wondering, where the "Standards" lowered in order for the "New" Chief to promote his guy? Just say'in.......

Know your history. It was the BOS who chopped the budget of the Sheriff's Office. This dept. has always struggled to keep up. Has nothing to do with, "Living within your budget or selling choppers". But then again that takes brains and intelligence to understand simple economics.
It's idiots like you who have very short memories of the past. Hell, you don't even have to live in the past. Being "over-run"? Really, what do you suggest the officers do when confronted with angry drunk leftist at a left-wing school that teaches these juvenile delinquents to "Question authority" even though they are already breaking the law? Please Barron give us taxpayers some of that knowledge you pound away on that keyboard of yours.
Funny you would be the first mushroom to complain when they don't come to your call for help as fast as you want them to. But then again, its you, always complaining. They do something you complain, they don't do something you complain. You see Barron, you want them to live within there means. Remember, there is a price for doing that and you don't get to complain after the fact.
Oh, and BTW. I'm not a fan of the Sheriff. But some things are out of his control. It's called crime......

These "Deficients and Over budgets" really confuse me. I am unable to grasp political math.
Every year some departments are over-budget I get that. There are circumstances that that is going to occur. Especially in Law Enforcement when it is impossible to budget for a budget in the future when you have no idea what will happen in the new budget cycle. Things like; riots, floods, fires, homicides, IV Halloween and Deltopia, staffing shortages that require massive amounts of overtime and a multitude of other unpredictable events.
If my memory serves me right during the early part of the recession the Sheriff's Dept. did not fill vacancies for years and even gave up positions. I do not believe the Dept. today has as many employees as it did just a few short years ago.
So my next question is, if the Dept. has less employees today due to the Board of Supervisors failures to manage the counties budget properly how is the county going to pay for a new north county jail that is going to cost $18 million+ more in the Sheriff's budget?
I'm not a magician but I don't think even David Copperfield could pull the rabbit out of this hat.....

RHS go back to your mushroom hole your an idiot. If your unable to distinguish between "Charity" and the "Taking" of ones money your a moron. Foundations are free to give to whoever they please. It is not up to you or the government as to who they support.
"Woods-Claeyssens Foundation says on their web site that they are founded to give money to "those in need to acquire the basic necessities of life – food, clothing, shelter, social services, public safety, and self-actualization..."
What is it about this statement that a mushroom like you doesn't understand?

Why is it that keyboard terrorists have to name call every issue that comes up when law enforcement is involved?
Does it make you feel good? Does it show all the other terrorists on here that you are just as ignorant as they are?
The cost is not solely for a quad. But then again that would take intelligence to actually be able to read and comprehend. Second, they are responding to "complaints". I guess LE should only respond to complaints that you keyboard terrorists call in and screw everybody else. Then when they don't respond quick enough you terrorists sit at your computers bashing them again. Third, it would be interesting to learn how many of you terrorists are actually liberals who voted for the very politicians who made the rules and laws that LE has to enforce and when they enforce the very rules your politicians made you complain?
Then the obvious question to all of this is that LE only pick and choose the laws they want to enforce and nothing else. Oh wait, then the other side will complain that LE isn't doing its job.
You don't like a law, call your representative and have it repealed. Don't blame LE for enforcing the very laws the voters put into place...

I say let them govern themselves so the rest of us (County residents) don't have to pay for their services.
Let them set their own taxes and hire their own city government. Now that would be a comedy show. Good luck IV I hope you succeed!!!!!

Why wasn't this part of her, "No means No bill?" And, to just clarify my position, why do we need a law for a public college to, "Suspend or expel" a student who committed a felony? I don't care where the crime was committed on or off campus. There are plenty of good students waiting to get in. Why are we always helping the idiots who live among us? Am I missing something here???
