I say lets keep the alligations away from all elections and let the people decide who they want to elect based on what they have to offer and who is the best qualified for the job. Same for the Sheriffs election,lets keep it clean! We are all tired of bickering between candidates. We get enough of that with our presidential candidates. Both of these candidates are good people.

OK preacher let's keep it to facts

Medina is a full time Constable

Holland has a full time job and he is always occupied on the week ends.

When is he gonna work the school zones to keep our children safe.

When is he gonna patrol, between fishing tournaments?

You know, I had the same questions about him until I spoke to him a few days ago. He came by and introduced himself to me and I asked him some questions. I have to admit, I didnt even know what a constable did until Holland told me the history of the office and what they do. I know Pete Medina as well as Holland and I know what Pete has and hasnt done as Constable. Yes Holland has a full time job. Holland said that he will not be a one man department. His plans are to have a staff of active reserve deputy constables to team up with to provide coverage to our precinct. He is only one man. We dont ask the Sheriff to be a one man department do we? He has deputies to help him. There has been many constables that have held the constable position who had a full time job. Heck our Justice of the Peace Aaron Green who has been in office for many years has had a full time job for years while he has been Justice of the Peace. Yes Pete Medina is a fulltime Constable, but we never see him. If he has so much time to do the job, then where is he? And where are his reserve deputy constables? The only one I ever see is soemone who already works at the sheriffs department who drives a white truck around with precinct 4 stickers all over it while he conducts work for the sheriffs department, and then he is never in our precinct. I have spoke to some folks that told me that are not voting for Pete because he made alot of promises before he was elected and now they never see him. School zones are important for sure. But they are not the only function of the constable from what I understand. Anybody can park in a school zone and turn thier police lights on. Fishing Tournaments? Dont know anything about that,but if he fishes some tournaments then more power to him. Every person needs to get away and fish.

Pete is not qualified to be constable. He was a janitor for many years and did a bad job working at the jail and probably has equipped his car with stolen supplies from the sheriffs dept when he worked there. I hear he has Mathis son as a officer who works with him also. Talk about a bad choice. Ask Bay City Police about him, you will be surpised.

Do you Citizens even know what a constable is paid? About $700 a month! They have a small gas budget which allows them to drive about 5 to 10 miles a day. They must provide their own uniforms vehicles and equipment. Deputy constables receive no pay no gas allowance no uniform allowance and must provide their own vehicle and equipment they work for free and spend their own money to do the job. So just in case you were wondering if you're getting your moneys worth I can assure you your getting much much more Moneysworth.
do their job?

If you don't want the job of being a constable for low pay, low gas allowance or low fuel budget, then don't run for the position. It's as easy as that. That stuff can't be a complaint if you already know what your getting in to...... Make your precinct some money. Write traffic tickets. Answer a call
Or two. Hell, why don't you serve papers while your at it....... It's the job. Again, this is the job. Low pay or not. It should be getting done in EVERY precinct. Not shoving your duties onto the sheriffs deputies who already have enough to do........ Oh, with little pay as well. Something to think about.......
