My view of Sheriff Babeu’s budget requests

Lately, there have been several newspaper articles, editorials and even some emails written by Sheriff Babeu stating that the Board of Supervisors should increase the level of funding for the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO).

I believe your county leaders have the same goal of providing residents with a high level of public safety. However, the approach your Board of Supervisors has taken is far different from that proposed by the Sheriff. The purpose of this note is to give you my perspective on funding for the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office and our budget situation as a whole.

Must ‘Write-In’ For Constable Aug. 28

Former Constable Jack McClaren resigned from his constable position to run for sheriff. He resigned on the last day to turn in signatures to have a name put on the ballot. That means all candidates running for constable for the Apache Junction Justice Court are running as “Write-In.”

Paul is a damn good Sheriff

Many people and some in the media simply attack, they work hard to tear other people down and for what purpose?   I’m no longer a young man and in my life I’ve learned that none of us are perfect and that you judge a person by their performance and results.

Paul Babeu, has repeatedly made sophomoric and flippant remarks

Pictured left to right are Deputy Jason Carnes, Sheriff Paul Babeu, Antonio Ramirez, Salvador Morreno and Chief Deputy Steve Henry.

Trust is the most important value a leader of any organization can possess.   This is especially true when that leader happens to be the head of a law enforcement agency.

Opinon: The high cost of border insecurity

With the controversy in the State of Arizona over illegal immigration -- particularly since the passage and signing into law of Senate Bill 1070 -- we have been inundated with news clips of angry people on both sides of the issue. We have also been lulled nearly to sleep by the talking heads on the evening news spouting figures about illegal immigration that have little or no meaning to us. Depending upon which television channel you watch, the numbers may even be different.

ObamaCare’s reality: American families

 

While running for president in 2008, then-Sen. Obama promised that families making less than $250,000 a year would not see a tax increase as a result of his health-care plan. Many warned that such a promise was simply untenable – that there was no way to do what he proposed without increasing taxes on middle-income Americans. Now, the numbers are in, and they don’t look pretty for already over-taxed families.

Obama is correct, we are no longer an exceptional nation

Publicity stunt

Wil Cardon is running in the Republican primary for the U.S. Senate against Jeff Flake. Someone should tell Cardon he’s doing it all wrong. His television commercials mention Flake’s name at least three times per ad and his own name is used only once. In effect, he’s advertising for Jeff Flake every time his ad runs.

Protecting Criminal Cartels?

Samantha White - Missing San Taan Valley girl

I was very saddened by my good friend (been friends for years) Bob Reveles’ very nasty article (“A Private Army Concocted Behind Closed Doors” Oct. 9) slamming Sheriff Babeu and me.  I’m not sure why Bob would defend and protect international criminal cartels?   My good friend Bob used Marxist Saul Alinsky tactics of attack instead of debating the facts.  So, here are the facts:

President Obama shows calm strength

The primary responsibility of the President of the United States is to protect U.S. citizens. In doing so, he runs the rick of making decisions not supported by all of our citizens yet impacts them in one form or another. In its role as the voice of the American people, Congress has the responsibility to speak up on behalf of its constituents ensuring the people’s voice is heard. The recent conversation on whether or not to punish the Syrian government for using chemical weapons against its citizens is an example of why we are considered the best Democracy on earth. Although we are strong and may be considered by some to be the world’s only true superpower, our system does allow for checks and balances. When it comes to the use of force in any situation, cooler heads must prevail. However, on the other hand, showing restraint and a calm demeanor does not convey weakness or a lack of resolve.

Political overload

Kathy Hughes’ book, “Bull Dozer Learns to Be a  Friend,” sells for $19.99 on Amazon.com.

It’s election time again and there is no place to hide. We get bombarded by road signs, junk mail, TV ads, radio ads, newspaper ads, phone calls and any other garbage that our wannabe representatives can think of to keep their message on the top of our minds.
