There’s a new Sheriff in town

Have I mentioned lately how glad I am that Sheriff-elect Adrian Garcia administered such a thorough butt-kicking to Tommy Thomas? Apparently, Thomas has not been particularly gracious or professional in defeat.

Garcia soundly beat Tommy Thomas by 12 points on election night after a bitter campaign. As we first reported, Thomas never called Garcia afterwards. And while Garcia calls his one meeting since with Thomas cordial, it hasn’t exactly been easy for Garcia to get vital information out of him. Last week he asked Sheriff Thomas for key documents about spending and the jail investigation.

“I have not received them,” Garcia said. “It concerns me, but we’re moving forward.”

Stay classy, Tommy. In the end, this won’t matter much – unlike, say, the Presidential transition, the things that need to be dealt with in the Sheriff’s office can wait a couple of weeks. What’s important is that the change is coming, and everyone knows it. Even if Tommy Thomas doesn’t want to do anything about it.

    The outgoing sheriff is probably too busy shredding and deleting as much as he can lest the incoming sheriff dicover it to meet with the incoming sheriff and show him the ropes. Some of which may still hang the outgoing sheriff.
