We need Sheriff Steve Moore for another term.

Steve Moore has more than 35 years of experience, from line staff to executive, and continues to carry out our public safety needs, even in tough fiscal times. As a former law enforcement officer, I know firsthand the challenges of jail management, one of our county’s most pressing challenges. In other counties, “double-bunking,” as the Sheriff is contemplating, is common and does not pose additional risks when staffing is addressed, as it is in San Joaquin County.

Sgt. Pat Withrow, Moore’s opponent, lacks management experience and hasn’t been responsible for a multimillion-dollar budget before. I’ve read his comments in other newspapers that were not based on reality, and show a lack of knowledge on what the position actually entails. Modular housing for inmates not deemed “minimum security” places our citizens at risk and is a bad option. Taking a proactive approach to law enforcement will result in more arrests, but does not eliminate victims, as Withrow communicated before. “Going out to work side by side” with the troops, in the jail or on the street, sounds tough, but it is not the Sheriff’s job.

We need a true leader and Steve Moore will serve us well again.
