Not Freida Cook.  Am a relative:  Well, the great thing about this country is that anyone can run for any elective office, qualified or not. Based on the material in this article, Deputy Arotin seems to be lacking in supervisory, management and administrative experience.  The job of Sheriff is about providing leadership in all those areas.  Secondly, I would have a problem with his attitude toward the Federal Government. With the corruption, dirty tricks and abuse of power the Feds are currently displaying, the only thing standing between them and the people is the County Sheriff.  I would rather see a Sheriff who puts the Constitution before the abuses of a corrupt Justice System and will firmly stand up for States Rights.  I believe that trend of Sheriff is emerging in parts of the country, including Colorado.  In the end, it will be up to the voters to decide who they want watching their back, but in my opinion Deputy Arotin is not that person.

Not Freida Cook,  Am a Relative - Debbie, the last time I looked “free speech” was alive and well in America, although that might be questionable the direction the Fed government is heading.  As far as the account goes, it exists and is usable by anyone the account holder permits (That’s me).  Not that anyone cares but my interest in commenting on this topic is that I am a long time property owner in Mesa County and pay substantial taxes.  As such, I have an interest in what is happening and read the Sentinal on a daily basis.  Secondly I am a career law enforcement professional with 17 years in management which gives be some knowledge of what it takes to do or not to do the job.  Obviously, you are a friend or supporter of Deputy Arotin and that is great.  I do not know the man personally, but am sure that he is a good Deputy.  That in itself however is not enough to provide the leadership skills required for the job as Sheriff.  Leadership is a tough course to follow at best and more difficult if you have no training or hands on experience.  You have your opinions and I have mine and that’s the way it is supposed to be in a democracy.  In the end, the voters of Mesa County will listen to the campaign pledges of all candidates, examine their qualifications and then make an educated choice.  That is also how the system is supposed to work.  Best wishes.  Patrick A. Rodgers, Ph.D. - Irvine, CA.  (Now I am Identified)
