Re: “UPDATE, 7/9: Sheriff's race in full swing

I think that these blogs have finally turned in the right direction, which is out of the negative and towards the true issues. People can say what they want about Maketa but the truth is that he has done outstanding work and I will support him to the very end. I am a Deputy who has worked with him for many years. When I started I had to work in the jail under (former) Sheriff Anderson. The situation I faced every day was horrid. I was in charge of 130 felon inmates by myself, Sheriff Maketa changed that because he cares about us and the tax payers. You see because if I got hurt, it cost the tax payers, if an inmate got hurt, it cost the tax payers, if I quit, it cost the tax payers etc...

Maketa has come up with his own plans and has listened to everyone on how to stay above water during the financial mess we as a society are facing. I cant believe that he has to face what he does on a daily basis and still give it his all, but he does.

I believe that Shirk is a title person and does not have the tax payers best interests in mind. I have seen his website and listened to him in person (He has debated with Maketa on multiple occasions already). During the 2 debates that I have watched between the two, Shirk proves over and over that he is not ready for this position. Maybe he will be someday but not now.

We as a community need the best person for the job and that is Maketa. We have not seen the low yet from the housing market decline but we will next year and after. I want someone who can stand toe to toe with the BOCC and look out for me as a tax payer.

I know that there are a few people out there who will claim that Maketa has done us wrong but I will tell you that I know for a fact that this is not true. It is all speculation and bending of truth. I can put alot of random facts together and make anyone sound bad and that is what Shirks campaign is trying to do. I ask that any concerned citizen in this county, please trust me that Maketa is the man for the job. I believe this so much that if Shirk is elected, I will get a new job in another county. I know that if Shirk is elected, it will mean the end to progress and we will fall into the hole that many other counties have.

Sheriff Maketa has my vote and always will.
