Re: “El Paso County sheriff faces new lawsuit

Sheriff Elder has chosen the path of retaliation toward anyone who may not support him. His abuses the office and public trust in his hiring , firing and promotional practices. While he technically won the election, there is no doubt his doesn't have the aptitude to see the number of people who voted against him and understand that many Republicans blindly vote party line. He has no honor. Perhaps a jury will recognize what occurred regarding the Duda's. Other employee's will be watching to see if a jury will understand the culture of the Sheriff's Office is an atmosphere of dishonor and lack of trust with this elected Sheriff and those his selects as his management.

Re: “The day Kavanaugh turned into Trump

Unbalanced yes. The fact is no liberal wishes Judge Kavanaugh to be on the supreme court. People are presumed innocent until proven guilty. If you were accused of a crime you would wish for due process. Then it is said, well this isn't a trial. It is a trial of public opinion used to push an agenda and destroy a man's reputation, without proof. However this comes out, no man should run for office because most likely there is a woman out there that that can destroy your reputation without proof.

Re: “Sheriff Bill Elder files only "vote yes" statement for the sheriff's sales tax

Deception by Sheriff Elder and the commissioners... The general fund should support all costs. The 2012 "temporary tax" was approved to give the county time to get their affairs in order. They failed as did Sheriff Elder. He is unable to maintain the trust of voters with his failure to properly manage money and personnel. He fails as a leader as shown by the attrition in the double digits loss of personnel.

Re: “UPDATE: El Paso County commissioners eye sheriff's tax extension

Until line item documentation of how the tax was used is published, the public most likely will not vote for the tax . Tax payers expect accountability which has not been demonstrated..

Re: “Sergeant alleges backlash for reporting sexual harassment, supporting sheriff’s opponent

Anonymous1cos: You are correct that the line level people serve with honor and pride. What remains a mystery is what Sheriff Elder has done with over 17 million dollars annually derived from the public safety tax. If you were to do the math, at an average of a $5,000 monthly salary, adding benefits, over 150 additional people could be employed. The remainder of the funds for equipment and other necessities. Look to your leadership, I say that tongue in cheek, and ask why they are unable to staff appropriately. Sheriff Elder isn't in a ward , nor patrolling the streets. You live and breathe in an atmosphere of uncertainties each day and your community applauds and supports you.

Re: “Sergeant alleges backlash for reporting sexual harassment, supporting sheriff’s opponent

Sad to see the inevitable outcome of Sgt. Duda's support for Col. Angley. The Sheriff's Office has always been a pit of vipers seeking to strike at the very core of democracy in each individuals right to support a political candidate without fear of retaliation. This has gone on for decades. Employees have always feared for their jobs often seeking secrecy and silence in their knowledge of bad acts by those who are in management roles. The Huffor's have removed their Facebook accounts most likely to hide their support of Sheriff Elder while they were on duty.

What disgusts me the most is no one from the county commissioner's, the county attorney, or the media other than the CSIndy will ever acknowledge the harassment and retaliation that employees of the Sheriff's Office endure daily. Additionally disgusting is the management that berated Sheriff Maketa for the same acts and continue to stay silent. Shame on you! The public will never know the truth because our media outlets in Colorado Springs will not report anything that remotely supports the employees of the Sheriff's Office.
