So I went to a debate to hear the facts because it seems that Pam Zubeck is very one sided. The truth was very scary, Jake Shirk was being fed lines by his puppet master Fisk, who is not worth the money he is being paid. Shirk gets up and openly lies to everyone in the room saying that he has requested records through the Colorado Open Records Act because he was denied the counties budget info. Hey bud, pay me because I can tell you its on the county web site free of charge. Next he displays his gun to everyone and says that every citizen should arm themselves for their own protection. Shirk quickly followed this by saying he wants to fight for criminals by taking away the background checks to get a concealed weapons permit. Could you imagine if every idiot had a gun with no checks? Crazy!! Shirk then went on to say that to put more deputies on the road, he will fire the Undersheriff, I guess he got this screwball idea off the top of his head because he cant do it. The Undersheriff position is a mandated position. Shirk then really starts to scare me by saying he is going to grossly cut the staffing within the jail to put ONE more deputy on the road. Here is a guy that has never been in the jail and wants to take the safety of our deputies and throw it in the wind. Sheriff Maketa has done worlds to make that jail safe for both inmates and staff and Shirk wants to destroy it.
Shirk was asked why he deffered a high profile case to the Sheriffs Office recently, when he was asked why, he stated "I wanted deputies who knew what they were doing". Wow, that was a kick in the face to his cops up there in Monument.
Last comment that had me laughing at this screwball of a guy is his comment on the marijuana laws. He stated "There is a difference between Medical Marijuana and illegal drugs". Ha, no there isnt Jake, its a federal law that says Marijuana is illegal, but I guess you dont really care about federal laws anyway because you are breaking one by simply being in the debate while under investigation of other federal laws.
Point here is that Jake Shirk is a shady character who has no right to even think about being Sheriff. He has a record of screwing up agencies and leaving. We dont want you here.
