I was extremely disappointed when I viewed Kevin Coppinger’s response to a question on his campaign Facebook page. A constituent of Essex County asked the canidate why we had an elected Sheriff. In response Coppinger explain that many people throughout the years have been trying to figure out the answer to that question and that until the legislature makes it a government appointment for the governor the voters will have to “sort it out.” I’m extremely astonished that candidate Coppinger could not come up with one good reason why we have an elected Sheriff. Why would he even run? It seems to me that Coppinger would gladly like to take the voice of voters away and stifle democracy. He obviously believes that being Sheriff should be an appointed position. This statements policy view could be a sneak preview of how Mr. Coppenger deals with the public, inmates, and organize labor working for the department. After seeing this post on Facebook I had to join BlueMass group and post a statement. I look forward to posting again about many other races and issues.
