Interesting quote by Susan Scott I read today “What is needed now is for leaders to become more open, more flexible, less egoistic and less hypocritical. We must loosen our death grip on whatever we believe to be the truth simply because it is how we want the truth to… Read more »

Since County Council seems to be calling the shots according to Ralph Obenberger, I would like to know what we are paying him for? Maybe it is for putting us in the civil rights violation express lines,,, Never mind the complete disregard for taxpayer funds being flushed down the toilet… Read more »

Looks like Ralph Obenberger can’t seem to get his story straight! When asked about whose decision it was to terminate Dick Luman, he stated it was the “County Counsel’ s decision” really? It was a two to one vote to terminate Dick Luman, Ralph Obenberger’s and Goode’s vote against Tim… Read more »

Last night the public got to see how unresponsive Obenberger is to the public. One of the questions last night was if he would consider a citizen advisory committee and you guessed it! Nope! He doesn’t want anyone around that department. He doesn’t want anyone from the “outside” except his… Read more »

You heard “the man” yourself folks! He wouldn’t have done anything differently on the Luman Panel, in Deputy Madrid’s situation, or have his deputies do anything differently in the Boulalaam situation. It came straight from the horses mouth last night! He obviously doesn’t care about breaking civil rights laws, ethical… Read more »

Super Size, you have it all wrong. What Sheriff Obenberger proved is that he was the smartest person in the room! He showed that he is smarter than three different judges who in reality, know nothing about the law!

You should be humbled to hear his words.

Good one!

Wow, I wonder if Ralph Obenberger will answer the big questions now! He has already admitted to profiling a social group of people from Burning Man! Wow talk about a violation of civil rights! Hmmm! According to Ellen Obenberger’s question last week, she also profiles these people as date rapists!… Read more »

Yes, Ellen and Ralph seem to think the end justifies the means….exactly what we don’t want our LEO thinking and doing. How can we expect someone to enforce the law when he thinks he is above it? And, as a little research will tell you, GHB is used by some… Read more »

@Sugarmagnolia I am sure you are correct about Ellen about being worried about her husband losing his job…. with that in mind remember folks desperate people do desperate things. As everyone witnessed by Ralph’s comments, funny he says he wouldn’t change a thing he did in the Luman, Madrid, and… Read more »

It is pretty sad that Obenberger so desperate that he uses his wife as a shill in the audience.

I’ll defend her right to be there and ask questions, she doesn’t give up her rights just because her husband is running. Also, she’s probably afraid that he’s gonna lose his job. It’s hard to imagine him going back to being a deputy sheriff if he loses the election. She… Read more »

I don’t think anyone was saying she doesn’t have the right to be there or to even ask a question. Actually I am quite glad she did ask that question. She had weeks to think of a question and when she did ask it, she insinuated that a whole class… Read more »

What is even more sad is the comments he makes like “I brought the wife out tonight” like she is lucky to be out amongst the populous!

It falls into line with how he addressed his female employees as “girls”. Please not his misogyny and sexist attitude in regards to women.

I think her pointed questions and remarks did him more harm than good. She seemingly lost her cool and her seething desperation was a bit hard to watch.
