Robin Sutherland, shame on yo

Robin Sutherland, shame on you for attacking our sheriff in your radio advertisements. Crime is down 34.6 percent; 100 additional officers could not have prevented Jan. 10. Keith Royal is doing a fine job prioritizing his budget. It is not the Board of Supervisors’ job to tell him how to spend that money. State law prohibits that. Money for the Sheriff’s Office comes from the general fund. More money for that department means less for libraries and mental health services. Clearly, you are confused about who runs the Sheriff’s Office. Perhaps you should be running for sheriff instead of supervisor.
