Re: “Sheriff Maketa gets a stinging wakeup call on friendly ground

In no way, shape or form, did Maketa know Evans was pulling out of the race (due to cancer) before he made his decision to run. Maketa filed his paperwork for running for Sheriff on Feb 2, 2010, as documented here on the Independent. Buddy, I'm on your side, but trust me, you got your facts wrong.

Re: “Sheriff Maketa gets a stinging wakeup call on friendly ground

Disgusted is correct. Maketa decided to run on February 8th, Todd Evans dropped out of the race on February 12th, but I'll give you an A for effort. I know where you were going with that.

Perhaps Maketa's ego would not allow him to see someone else take over his empire. Perhaps he likes to play with fire, on the chance that all his dirty secrets would become public. Perhaps he likes to take risks, that his life would become public, and that the voters wouldn't care and still vote for him. Perhaps he wanted to see the people who work for him tremble at their knees and have to decide who to vote for, him or the other guy. (or at least say one thing and do another . . . . )

"If Shirk were to be elected, you worthless accusatory bloggers would get what you all deserve. The Sheriff's office budget would be ruined by Shirk, and your sworn jobs would become civilianized (something Shirk has PUBLICLY stated he would do!), your salaries would be cut, and many of you would lose your jobs! But hey, you'd get what you asked for! " - - - - - -hmmmm aren't you doing a bit of the same?? Thats the great thing about blogging, getting to say what you are feel passionate about, and voicing your opinion. You can have your opinion, we'll have ours.

The assembly was and should be a huge wake up call for Maketa. People do care, and if Shirk plays his campaign cards right, he just might win. At this point, anybody but Maketa would be fine by me.
