After watching the spats between the other two candidates, the choice has to be obvious. I see the others on the TV news and must comment that neither one looks in shape to be a peace officer.
The Monterey County Prosecutors’ Association endorsed candidate Scott Miller for sheriff Monday, after a “near unanimous” vote by its members.
Although he officially left the job as a retiree, he later said he was unfairly fired and ended up suing the city even as he successfully campaigned for City Council. An hour before being sworn in, he formally accepted a $150,000 settlement of the wrongful termination claim he filed against the city. Miller was the top vote-getter in that race for seats on the council.
Matheson said Miller is the only sheriff’s candidate who speaks Spanish, and would bring a “great intellect” to the office.
