Hooper: A rude bunch
Since I don’t know either candidate for the sheriff’s race, I went to Sheriff Joe DiSalvo’s campaign event on Friday evening at the W Hotel to hear what he had to say on the issues.
At the gathering, there were a handful of disgruntled, very loud, former Sheriff’s Office employees front and center. I learned later that they are pretty much the same five-ish people who caused the ruckus at the Woody Creek Caucus and have been collectively writing nasty letters to the editor. Their questions and comments were so small and petty — to say nothing of how rude, disrespectful and clearly bitter they are. They derailed the event. No decorum, no civil discourse.
I was able to speak one on one with Sheriff DiSalvo when it ended and got my questions answered. I liked his answers and will be voting for him.
I would say if you have questions, reach out to him directly. It is unlikely the detractors are going to allow meaningful debate at future planned events.
