Our current Sheriff Hilton is not seeking re-election next year. He has chosen to endorse Deputy Mike Slocum to succeed him. It has been brought to my attention that Deputy Slocum continues to hold his job in the sheriff's department while actively campaigning and that with the "blessing of the sheriff" conducts campaigning during working hours and with the resources of the sheriff's department. I don't know about everyone else but I am not in favor of my tax dollars being used for this purpose. I'll choose my own candidate to "endorse" and would rather "my money" go to him instead. Anyone else have a problem with this?
