To the editor:
It's long past the time for the sore losers to accept the fact that Mike Scott is an extraordinary sheriff! He is doing an outstanding job! And he has been approved and reelected by an overwhelming majority of Lee County taxpayers!
This attack on the sheriff, for doing his job is actually an assault on the great majority of citizens who support the sheriff and do not approve of pin head individuals telling him what to do.
Of course the unions say, "pay out more money." Their only interest is building the membership and they look to this as an opportunity to satisfy those desires.
On the other hand the sheriff is sensitive to wasting taxpayers' money and in order to run any organization successfully the CEO, in this case the sheriff, rewards those individuals that he feels are deserving. The key here is HE rewards.
Sheriff Scott is not the towering favorite for the job for any strange reason. He has shown himself to be a man possessing exceptional skills. He has demonstrated a unique ability. And, he is respected and loved throughout Southwest Florida, and beyond, because of his performance.
To permit the union to direct the Sheriff, at any time or for any reason, is a slap in the face to the voting public and should never be supported by any governmental agency. The people have spoken...we want Sheriff Scott to run the agency, without childish interference, and minus the catering to a small band of loud mouths.
This latest attack on this good man is sickening!
