Re: “Star treatment

I guess I'm failing to see any rumor in this article. Ms. Zubeck has not made any claims of "hanky panky," she has only documented information from public records (personnel and Internal Affairs files.) People reading this get to make their own deductions from the facts presented in this article. If what you deduct is hanky panky, high school, he said-she said drama, then that's on you. There has been implications that Ms. Zubeck has a personal vendetta against the Sheriff and is trying to "slander" him. This is only a tactic to take the focus off of the real issue at hand, preferential treament of some employees, and put the spot light on Ms Zubeck. The only thing she has done has brought several issues, and there are A LOT more, to the attention of the public. The members of the Sheriff's office are fully aware of what has been going on for several years and are thankful that this has finally come out. When I say members of the Sheriff's office, I am referring to the other 98% that policy actually applies to.
The Sheriff made a comment on the news last night about taking a polygraph, and he'd be willing to take one if his accusers did. I don't see anyone accusing him of anything, they are simply forming their own reasonable opinions based on information provided by the Sheriff's Office to the Independent. People are asking for proof ... they can get their own copies of the internal affairs files kept by the Sheriff's office, I can't imagine the reams of paper it would have taken to include them in this article. I'm sure the Sheriff would be willing to provide any information requested ... oh wait, he's keeping the "personal" files secret.
People are trying to justify the comptrollers pay raises. There were several people who voluntarily resigned from the Sheriff's office, at Maketa's request, in order to ensure a balanced budget, with the guarantee they would have priority to be hired back when the budget could afford them their jobs. I can't imagine how they feel about these enormous pay raises to one specific employee when we couldn't afford to keep all the employees we had. The several hundred other employees of the Sheriff's office were ecstatic to see a 3.5% pay increase this year, as we have not had one for several years.
My favorite part of Todd Evans' campaign was that he was standing for INTEGRITY. He understands leadership is more that the title, and that motivating your people to get the job done is of the utmost importance. I see 3 employees who are motivated ... what about the several hundred others? Maketa, you are seriously lacking in the integrity department, I'm sure your wife would agree.
