Sheriff Nehls really went out and formed the best staff that he could find - not political cronies. Says something of his leadership when all of these fine and experienced folks come to work for him.

I always thought that military leaders make the best leaders in the corrections/detention - you have to be tough and the staff has to follow suit.

Sorry to see that not one of your new appointments were Hispanics. And please don't tell me that there are no qualified Hispanics in the Police Business.

Very good selection of individuals. Broad range of talent, which appears qualified to fullfill your promises and mandates. Stay straight and God will Bless you.

TrustinTim; wasn't aware you were so familiar with FBSO personnel?
I'd argue most S.O.'s/Constables are political in nature.

Seems he went outside the department for almost everyone...there were plenty of good people in the department, but they weren't ass kissers, so they weren't welcome. I am glad I don't live in the county anymore...you elected Obama lite.
