Sheriff’s Organisation to Picket Bohn for Supervisor Campaign Kickoff
Humboldt County Sheriff’s Association press release:
EUREKA – Members of the Humboldt Deputy Sheriffs Organization (HDSO) and their supporters will picket outside the Rex Bohn campaign kickoff event Friday to voice their frustration that Supervisor Bohn is not working to adequately fund qualified and experienced deputies, sergeants, and investigators to cover Humboldt County’s 4,000 rugged square miles.
HDSO members were angered when Rex Bohn advertised his campaign kickoff on his website and falsely listed HDSO as an endorser of his re-election. HDSO did support Rex Bohn when he ran for office in 2012 because Bohn promised to prioritize public safety and get more sheriff patrol coverage to the rural parts of his district and to Cutten. However, after three years in office, HDSO members are upset with Bohn’s prioritization of the measure Z money because it is not adequate to keep enough qualified experienced deputies on patrol, especially in both Cutten and the rural areas in his district.
HDSO president Jamie Barney will be available for comment outside the event at 12:30.
