Honorable Board of Supervisors
Ladies and Gentlemen
I'm here before you today for two reasons;
First, because you, the Board requested information regarding the staffing of my office and further information on my budget.
Undersheriff, Richard Williams and El Dorado County Sheriff Office Fiscal Administrative Manager, Don Ashton will be presenting those shortly.
Second, to tell you that I was appalled at the treatment and disrespect you showed me, my office and my staff after my presentation to you on April 5th•

Boards of Supervisors all over our country are stepping out of line, glad to see this Sheriff stand up to them.
Those being elected or appointed to any office these days think they have powers that doesn't exist.

He has taken the high road and embarrassed the power structure in front of an audience. They will be out for his scalp. Local politics is mean and unforgiving. I think eventually he will live to regret this public action when he could have settled his problems on the golf course with the power brokers in the council.
To bad, he seemed like a LEO that wanted to live up to the oath of "serve and protect"
My advise would be for the Sheriff to "lawyer up" because he is going to need one eventually.
