Re: “Sheriff showdown

Comingforward, and hatefreeloaders, you are both right on the dime! It appears that the Independent is trying to come across as a credible source of journalism, but I ain't buying it! I too was at the debate at Canyon Bank. You are absolutely right that Maketa said medical marijuana is here to stay, not the dispensaries. There's a huge difference, and I'm sure Zubeck knew that when she made that little "oops", hoping nobody would notice! Guess what, people noticed! I think it's awesome that somebody has a tape recording of it, and I hope they can produce that to prove, once again, Zubeck's lack of ethics when it comes to reporting. Wonder what else was "misreported" from that debate?

I'm thinking that maybe since Zubeck is so into "digging" she should "dig" into Shirk's background a bit. I've heard it's much more interesting than he lets on. Maybe she should ask around about his expectations at restraunts for free food for himself and his family, taking tip money off of tables at restraunts to give to his church, being told to leave a certain chain restraunt after continuously arguing with a manager over a tip...sounds like some sort of an egotistical maniac, not a leader of an organization who should be setting an example. How about checking in to his "triple dipping" as related to a stolen gun in Aurora, or the fact that he never "ran" a jail, he simply was a shift lieutenant. It's been said that he was asked to retire due to the fact that he had nothing left to offer in Aurora. Yep, people are starting to talk. Many Aurora officers say he wouldn't stand a snowball's chance of being elected in their town. In fact, apparently there was a fundraiser up there in which he was heard badmouthing his opponent and spreading rumors. Sounds like dirty politicing to me.

Zubeck, you are so blatantly campaigning FOR Jake Shirk, you don't even try to hide it any more!! Apparently you had left prior to Sheriff Maketa arriving at the picnic. Maybe if you are going to write a slam piece you should stick around until the event has ended. Obviously you were in too much of a hurry to get back to your office to write your little Chief Jake for Sheriff article. Did you even bother to ask anyone if possibly Sheriff Maketa had a prior committment? Maybe he had another event at the same time? I'm assuming you didn't ask anyone about that. Maybe you should have. Remember, he DOES have a job and that job comes before other things.

Obviously you didn't attend the Sunrise Republican group over the weekend. If you had you may have noticed what a room full of people noticed. That the 35 years of experience your candidate, Jake Shirk, has doesn't do him an iota of good. His little cronie Kyle Fisk was madly texting away to tell Shirk what to say. Shirk sat there the entire time with his phone in his hand receiving the texts from Fisk and writing things down in his little notebook. Not only was it obvious he needed help with what to say, he also was being extremely rude to the other panel members.

I'm assuming you won't bother to print a retraction of this article. You are a blatant liar and this piece proves it. Ask around to those who bothered to stay the entire time so that you can get the truth.
