It was a huge turnout last night for supporters of Jimmy Lee Holden for Sheriff.
The placed was filled with great food and enthusiastic supporters, who grabbed his lawn signs as they donated money and headed out the door.
The Sheriff’s Department is a mess right now. Hildebrand has added thirty nepotism hires and the salaries for the 170 employees is $11 million. Reports are not written to intentionally make it look like crime is going down and in places like Middlefield, there is a serious opioid problem that is being ignored. One plank of Holden’s platform is to clean up that mess.
Instead of throwing FOJ money away on gimmicks, he is going to use it to increase training for the deputies and the many deputies who are not commissioned will either take the necessary schooling or be updating there resume.
It’s time for a BIG change in the Sheriff’s Department and Holden is the guy. As President Trump said before he was elected: “Vote for me – what do you have to lose?”
