The former Sheriff candidate should look in the mirror and face disgrace for what he said. Sheriff Storms is a four term Sheriff with an unblemished record who retired and recommended the recently retired Sheriff. The news media and 2 county commissioners have made a circus out of this whole situation and I do not blame Sheriff Storms for ignoring this ridiculous sideshow. There were 5 deputies who were not re-appointed and they are causing the same unrest in this situation as they did during the election. The only thing political about this is The Chairman of the county commissioners and his anger over his nephew not being sworn in. The former candidate ran a less than honorable campaign and could not let it rest after he lost the election; but the now unaffiliated candidate in November is another story. The bottom line is that 25 deputies openly and aggressively supported the former candidate in his campaign and on his website. 20 of them were re-appointed by Storms which means politics had nothing to do with this but rather the individuals behavior and their determination to disrupt. Sheriff Storms was asked to re-establish order and that is exactly what he did. Kudos to you Sheriff Storms and keep up the good works that you have always exemplified.
