Let’s Roll on Community Debates for Sheriff’s candidates in San Bernardino County!”
Voters hoping for a San Bernardino County Sheriff’s candidate debates before deciding who to support in next month’s election are out of luck so far. Candidate Paul Schrader Sheriff/Coroner had worked with local radio talk show host Barb Stanton to schedule a forum in May at Victor Valley College with candidates Rod Hoops and Mark Averback. All three candidates had agreed back in April to appear in this forum. Barb Stanton was informed on Tuesday, May 4, 2010, by David Ellis, Hoops’ campaign manager, that Hoops would not participate in the forum. Ms. Stanton asked why and Mr. Ellis said neither of the other candidates have enough money for us to be concerned with it.
I believe the voters need the opportunity to see the differences in the candidates. I believe in voter choice and I think the statement regarding who has enough money, shows a disconnect by the current administration with the voters in the county.
