Two letters illustrate cohesion in department regarding candidate
August 3, 2010 · Updated 12:09 PM
I believe Ms. Fjellman, and indeed, virtually all of the other letter writers who felt the members of the Sheriff's Office should have stayed silent, have missed the fairly obvious common thread in the deputies' letters.
There are two points made in those letters that illustrate the cohesion she feels is lacking.
1. In general, the members of the San Juan County Sheriff's Office have some concerns and issues with Deputy Asher in the role of sheriff.
2. In general, the members of the San Juan County Sheriff's Office have no such concerns or issues with any of the other four candidates.
I challenge you to find any member within the Sheriff's Office, other than Deputy Asher, who would take issue with these two cohesive points.
