Council’s handling of
sheriff’s issues disappointing
I am so ashamed for Los Alamos. The county council this week managed to make me very sad in the way that the sheriff’s issues were handled. Normally, the council discusses things almost to the point of being ridiculous. But, this decision was done with little discussion and the timing seems very suspicious given that two council members were not present.
Whether you agree with the argument that the county needs a sheriff department is really not the issue. The fact that four councilors decided to strip the department of its’ duties, save one, with only four days notice, is inexcusable. I definitely will not be voting for any of those involved if they are up for reelection in November.
As Pete Sheehey argued, (thank you for your sane voice) Sheriff Marco Lucero and deputies should have been given one more chance to voice their side. I am so mad I could say bad words, but they would not be printed. But, I bet the four councilors could hear them, if they only listened.
