Justin Sternberg: Foster for sheriff

Bill Smethers made major errors in judgment during the League of Women Voters' candidate forum at the Rood Center.

He demonstrated a lack of judgment by unleashing ageism in a community of retirees. He demonstrated a lack of judgment by making fun of his strongest opponent for planning how he will accomplish necessary change in an antiquated department. He also demonstrated a lack of judgment by highlighting his inability to properly lead the ill-fated Narcotics Task Force.

Perhaps with a strong mentor, Smethers could grow into a leadership position but he's nowhere near that yet.

I'll vote for the old guy who wants new technology and a culture of professionalism that best serves Nevada County's citizens. Foster for sheriff!
