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

Shirk is being a coward, hiding behind his paid staffer "No More Taxes", aka Kyle Fisk. If he had the integrity he claims, and full transparency he would have informed the citizens of what was going on, and this wouldn't have become an issue. A candidate that wanted to be "upfront and honest" with the voters would have informed them as soon as he knew he was under federal investigation. Transparency....HA! Let's not even get into the information that has been leaking from the Aurora PD. A quote from a retired Aurora PD member "He couldn't even run for Dog Catcher and win the election." That's why he only made it to the rank of commander with all the time he spent there, even while they went through numerous Chief's of Police with a large turnover.

Interesting how Shirk claims on his website how he's going to review all personnel files, yet he has a member of the Monument PD, who was relieved of his duties at the sheriffs office due to numerous citizen complaints and Shirk was quick to embrace him and brag about the acquisition of this individual. There are several more just like him. Sounds like "tawdry" behavior, dontcha think?

Shirk claims to be a 2nd amendment supporter, yet he has absolutely no record whatsoever of being so. He's got no record of testifying at the legislature, yet Maketa has a longstanding record locally and at the state level of fighting to protect the 2nd amendment rights of the citizens. Shirk has never even been a member of the local firearms organization...well, not until he decided to run for sheriff.

Got news for ya Shirk and Fisk, an elected Sheriff cannot ask for a tax increase, the Commissioners do. And by the way, there are many people out there who know YOU supported the last effort to increase staffing throughout the Sheriff's office, DAs office and Coroner's office.....1A! Shirk tells citizens what they want to hear with no merit. "No More Taxes" Fisk ought to check into his candidates background before he starts running his mouth, and Shirk ought to remember things he's said in the past, because others do. Shirk ought to speak on his own behalf, rather than pay people to speak for him! Another example of the kind of sheriff he would be...always hiding behind someone...Shirking the issues!

Let's talk again about running a clean campaign...how about the secret continuous meetings with Zubeck and the Indy, his previous campaign manager bragging to people about how they knew what Zubeck was going to write before it was even published, his lies to the public about being a longstanding 2nd amendment supporter, the fact that his campaign is planning an attack mail piece against Maketa, his campaign calling Maketa supporters selling lies...yep, that's some clean campaigning, folks! The difference is Shirk is hiding behind people he pays, not standing in front of the voters "himself" and speaking his own thoughts. That's the kind of sheriff he would be...sounds like quite the politician to me! Shirk is the type of candidate is in search of a new title as opposed to solving community problems! As far as I know, he hasn't been at the table to solve local community problems since he's lived in this community. Maketa has always been honest and direct with the voters and has a long history of working with the community to solve problems. Shirk is all talk and has no history to back his positions.
