With the resignation of our sheriff, Gary Raney, Ada County will lose one of its most dedicated and best public servants. I have known Gary and supported him for several years, all without regret. The sheriff’s department has grown and prospered under his leadership, and he will be very hard to replace. He has recommended that the Republican Central Committee appoint Capt.Stephen Bartlett. I sincerely hope they will follow his recommendation, as nobody is better qualified to name a replacement. Please don’t make this a political issue, make it a common-sense issue. To Gary, I wish you nothing but the very best in your new endeavor, you have earned it. Thank you for your many years of service, Gary.
