His name is Ryan Smith. He decided that with his new job at UCSB and his new family, it would be a stretch to run this term. He will be worth watching in the next 4 years in my opinion.

Sheriff Bill brown is not perfect. But he is the best qualified of the two candidates in this election - period.

Never said he was loved. He is certainly the most qualified. The DSA will come out with an endorsement recommendation in the first week of May.

JohnLocke,Do you believe that an unexperienced sergeant will be able to curtail the actions of people which create the situations of officer involved shootings? If you have some thoughts on how to prevent these situations, I am certain that all of us, including the sheriffs and chiefs would like to hear them. I'm sincere in that comment.
Bill Brown, when first elected, had 29 years of law enforcement experience, had been a police chief for two cities, president of the California Police Chief's Association, graduated from the Delinquency Control Institute and the FBI National Academy. He also had achieved a bachelor's degree in management as well as a master's degree in public administration from USC.
Sergeant Brown said basically that she has taken some classes in college, but she doesn't state what. She has never attempted to advance to the rank of lieutenant, which is a middle manager in our profession. She has not taken the time and effort to prepare herself for the position of CEO of an organization of over 600 people with a $125 million dollar annual budget.
I don't know your background, but I suspect that experience counted when it came time to advance.

Sandra Brown says she "attended" community colleges and USC. I'd be interested on the details, like what classes or programs, or how many hours.

I told you Priceless, go to your anger management classes - it will help you immensely.

Not excusing it Priceless. Just sad when good people go bad, no matter who they are. Have you gone to your anger management class today?
