    Sheriff isn’t running for Mayor the way I figured he would so he really loves his job. He does need to pay his employee’s more to retain them, keeping us safe. He has said this it to catch up. He won’t be asking for this amount of raise every year.

    @SW no you won’t they did a 4 year settlement to get them off their back..All the deputies still don’t have their raises..Why not? That’s the story — not the budget . But notice the 15 M for debt..That’s just to pay to have the interest on the credit card…
