A MESSAGE FROM THE CANDIDATE...
I’m running for Cape May County Sheriff because I’ve seen first hand as a detective in the the Cape May County Prosecutors Office since 1999, the need for new leadership in the Sheriff’s Office.
I also don’t see this as a political issue….no one is served when there’s no accountability. Since 1940, we’ve had nothing but Republican Sheriffs, good men all, but there is something wrong when there’s no accountability. I believe it’s time for a change. There are issues at the jail such as over crowdedness, staff morale, and security that have not been addressed and I don’t see where yet another Sheriff from the same party will acknowledge the problems left by his or her predecessor. Hasn’t Cape May County had enough of this? Frankly, I would feel just as strongly if we had 40 years of democratic sheriffs….change is good. I’m not anti-Republican or Democrat, I’m anti-complacency,
I’m anti-arrogance, and I’m anti-apathy…..common results after 68 years of one party in an elected office.
Now you may think like the old saying…”if it ain’t broke….” My friends, it is broke!! It’s broke when over crowdedness at the jail jeopardizes the safety of all those working there….it’s not about making the prisoners more comfortable, it’s about insuring the safety of the officers should there be any disturbance. It’s been happening in other jurisdictions, I want to prevent it happening here. It’s broke when County taxpayers pay to settle frivolous lawsuits due to lack of supervision. It’s broke when we don’t take more advantage of jail house intelligence to support our local police departments in their fight against gang related crime. Yes, it’s broke….and I’m “the People’s Sheriff” to change it!!
On November 4th, I hope you’ll demand accountability and vote for your Sheriff...
