Kimberly Dvorak Kimberly Dvorak 3 Comments

In a stunning turn of events, just days before the California primary, Sheriff Gore appears to have embellished his FBI exploits. Statements like “I stormed hijacked planes, I did all that stuff,” could have been exaggerated and needs further explanation. The emotional aspects of the San Diego County Sheriff’s race may have caused Gore, the current appointed caretaker of the …

Guest Column Guest Column 6 Comments

Guest Commentary by Michael Schwartz You can’t find an intersection in San Diego that isn’t plastered with the name of at least one of the three candidates for the office of Sheriff. The attention given to this race is not surprising since there is no elected incumbent for the highest law enforcement position in the county. We’ve seen some unusual …

Sheriff’s Race Dwindles to Three

Barry Jantz Barry Jantz 5 Comments

Unless Bruce Ruff plans on walking into the Registrar of Voters, paying his filing fee, taking out his nomination form, and returning with 20 signatures in the next half-hour, he’s out. Let’s put it this way.  He’s out. For a guy whose campaign kept promising information that would blow the top off the race, Ruff’s campaign ends rather quietly. It …

That said, it’s still significantly early. Name ID can be softened just as significantly with financial resources and momentum.  Appointed Sheriff Bill Gore and former Assemblyman Jay La Suer have plenty of …

Greg Larkin Greg Larkin 9 Comments

Sheriff candidate Jim Duffy may have already staked his claim as the union candidate, scoring both the Deputy Sheriff’s Association and state PORAC endorsements. But, even those organizations over the years have backed candidates, including Republicans, with less than perfect labor credentials. It was very likely that the Labor Council would follow suit with an endorsement of Duffy, no doubt, …
