Re: “Bigger than St. Peter's Basilica

I wonder what rump ranger rich would have said if the county had spent double what it did on the new Citizens Service Center to rehabilitate the buildings they were in and then build parking structures at both to handle parking problems? what a joke... and old crank..thank the unions for all the manufacturing moving overseas...moron.

Re: “Maketa balks on four debates, lobs missile at Shirk

Just more dirty politics from a dirty sheriff. Maketa wants to turn everyone’s attention away from the issues at hand and distract them with frivolous claims. if he was half a man he would stand up debate Shirk and let the people decide... but maybe he is afraid he will be exposed for what he truly is...dirty. it is time to clean up El Paso County Sheriffs office... get rid of maketa and all his cronies, they are all dirty, just ask a line level deputy, they will tell you. I respect Chief Shirk for trying to run a clean campaign without all the mud slinging and wanting to debate on the issues… but our sheriff chooses to sling mud and refuses to talk about the issues…go figure. Come time for the primary I will be voting for Shirk.

Re: “Sheriff's race heats up as Maketa slams challenger Shirk's credentials

Maketa is nothing but an immoral, unethical, arrogant, egotistical, jerk that needs to move on. Then maybe someone who is at least halfway moral and ethical can come in and clean up the cesspool that is known as the El Paso County Sheriffs Office. If we can just get rid of the trash the rest of the deputies can do the job that we hired them for. And if you don't think the S.O. is a cesspool just try talking to some of the deputies... it will open your eyes. I don’t care who gets elected as sheriff… as long as it is not Maketa or one of his good ole boys, we need fresh new leadership in this county and none of his current staff have what it takes. So I will vote for anyone besides the above mentioned group, anything will be better than we have now, so I guess my vote will have to be for Shirk.

Re: “Star treatment

You guys need to stay current; the pleasure of the sheriff thing is dead, only deputy sheriffs in supervisory positions responsible directly to the sheriff or under sheriff whose duties include the implementation of policies and procedures for the sheriff's office shall serve at the pleasure of the sheriff.
I have included the summery of the bill for you to read below, only a handful of deputies serve at the pleasure of the sheriff.

Re: “Star treatment

If the Sheriff cannot tell the truth about when he filed to run for sheriff how can we trust him to tell the truth about anything else (see sheriff update in INDY BLOG section). the sheriff is caught in a verifiable lie... but all the sheep in this community will still support him... baa, baa, he is a great sheriff and above reproach baa, baa... don't drink the kool-aid throw this bum out of office.

Re: “Sheriff update

Well he probably thought he would not get caught in this lie... he did, now lets hope he gets caught in all the rest. And to all of you who claim that he is totally innocent... you must be totally stupid!

Re: “Star treatment

Yep Maketa is a real stand up guy (snicker, snicker)... he would only lie and cheat if he was alone, or with somebody. As for his comptroller... she got all the raises for her skill... just not her skill with finances
