I have noticed really in the past three elections that there really hasn't been a qualified candidate run against Sheriff Pennington. I am very interested to hear from the people of Saline County is this a party thing where as the democratic where on top and now the flavor of the month is republicans? Or is it simply the person running? And are the voters and people tired of the current administration or are they pleased? I guess what I'm most interested about is if a good qualified candidate with some actual law enforcement experience ran against the current sheriff as a democrat could that person win? I feel they there is always room to change and grow an agency. I've been in law enforcement ten years and have seen things change for the better and worst and really just want the average saline county residents opinions

I personally, do not believe that the position of sheriff should be political//  experience and qualification far out weigh  party We could end up with a Barney Fife or worse.  We need a sheriff not a politician  Saline county has the right man for the job.

Agreed the whole point of my blog is there is legislation in the works now to make local positions like sheriff a bipartisan position like judges I feel it would be a good move

I do not understand why party affiliation is so important in qualifications for the job If he is doing a good job, why change? .

I couldn't agree more Al as far as parties not mattering I feel on a local level it's experience and the person and the qualities he or she brings with them.

Concerning sheriff as candidate, I do not believe party maters and the elections have proven this

I have to agree with the old aint broke, and I sure dont believe in "change" just for the sake of change..I believe that the current sheriff need only to continue doing a great job, and he will be unbeatable. So I say, save Bruce the time and money used to run a campaign, and NOONE run against him. Then he can concentrate on his work.

The old saying that if it works don't fix it makes sense to me.  He has been tested and politics should not matter. I believe he must be doing a good job and see no reason for change for changes sake???????

Yes, I think people are generally quite happy with Sheriff Pennington. He seems affable and good at his job. And yes, Saline County is heavily Republican. He survived a decent primary challenge last time, so I would be surprised if he was in any trouble electorally in the next election.

I'm happy with Sheriff Pennington, but you're right about there not being qualified opponents. The election numbers aren't even close.
