“It is my desire to provide new, fresh and experienced leadership to the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office and bring the next level of responsive administration to the citizens of St. Mary’s County.

    St Mary’s will actually have a choice this time. Well, if you are a Republican you will.

      Stop acting like we “finally” have an alternative candidate. Anyone could have put their name in the hat, but they chose not to.

        I never said “finally”, I said “actually.” Reading isn’t your thing, eh?

        It took an outsider to give us a alternative candidate. Anyone within the sheriff’s office was too afraid to run against “the man” for fear of retaliation from his gestapo.

    Good get rid of the good ol boy system. Sheriff Cameron can be judged by the turn over rate of his Deputies. Enough said.

      GW,

      Could you please explain the “good ol boy” system to us? I’m pretty sure that Sheriff Cameron ran for election and was duly elected (several times) by the citizens of St. Mary’s county. Exactly how does the “good ol boy” system work?

    What actual law enforcement experience does this retired Navy Captain have?

    • Rob Stark on October 12, 2016 at 9:19 am

      None

    wasn’t one of his sons a deputy and fired by sheriff Cameron?
