◼ ...District Attorney Paul Gallegos, who would lose Hislop's services if he's successful in his bid to become sheriff, is giving his chief investigator his full support.
”I have worked to attract, hire and maintain the best, the brightest and the most qualified people to work on behalf of the people of the state of California,” Gallegos wrote in an e-mail. “Mike Hislop exemplifies those qualities and characteristics. He is extremely intelligent, has excellent organizational and leadership skills and strives for excellence in all his endeavors. I have no doubt that he will be an outstanding sheriff.”
Hahahaha. But what is really interesting is the comments. The spin machine is in motion - but the truth is being spoken aloud.
Fred said, and I agree: Hislop is nowhere near qualified for this office. By all accounts he was a mediocre cop with EPD (that's why he left- no upward movement left). By everything I've read, he's been mediocre in his position with the D.A.'s office.
He has literally no managerial experience, and doesn't seem to have any idea about what even his current job description consists of. Very poor choice for a candidate in this race.
Then comes the Sterling-Nichols grade spin: I've met Mike Hislop on several occasions and at various functions. He is definitely the most qualified candidate for Sheriff. He's friendly and approachable. When you gget your head out of your a&$, take the time to talk to hiim and ask him where he stands on various local issues. You may be surprised.
The DA's office has seen many major changes over the years beginning with getting rid of the dead weight that's been plaguing that office for many years. Paul Gallegos has modernized the office and brought in some of the most talented Deputy DA's he could find. Many of their records are flawless. There has been more wins during Paul's term than ever before. Again, take the time and look up the facts before spouting off at the mouth. Especially those of you who don't even live here.
You really have to take that last statement apart piece by piece...
"dead weight" virtually ALL of the experienced, talented, dedicated DDAs, and most all of the staff
"most talented Deputy DA's he could find" "Tim's a stud!"
Many of their records are flawless "yougofree.com
more wins during Paul's term remember, plea deals count as wins
"worked to attract, hire and maintain the best, the brightest and the most qualified people"Not exactly.
As for Gallegos and Hislop's great adventure - Who can forget the attempt to set up an assault team, outfitted in matching carharrt gear, and complete with AR-15s?
The DA Investigators have had some successes solving cold cases. But that does not a Sheriff make.
