Republican Sheriff Joe Arpaio nails Democratic Candidate Paul Penzone’s domestic violence record just as we predictedThursday, October 11th, 2012
What did I tell you?
We predicted this would happen, and we were one of the first to inform you how Sheriff Joe Arpaio was going to absolutely nail the flawed Democratic Candidate Paul Penzone. THIS IS PRECISELY WHY I SUPPORT INDEPENDENT CANDIDATE Mike Stauffer for sheriff.
Here is what is lighting up television media from the Arpaio campaign:
We are tired of extremism and partisanship, and more importantly, partisanship does not belong in the Sheriff’s department.
There are several “first times” in the state of Arizona political history which include:
- For the first time, independent voters make up the 2nd largest voting block in our state and in Maricopa County.
- For the first time, prop 121 / Arizona Open Primary has successfully surpassed the blocking attempts from Party bosses on both sides of the aisle.
- For the first time, Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been called out for the lawsuits he has cost our State and has been sued by the Department of Justice this election cycle.
- For the first time, a former LONG LIFE REPUBLICAN (via Mike Stauffer for Sheriff) left the GOP to become an independent voter because the candidate believes partisanship does not belong in a sheriff’s office.
Some of the highlights on the flawed Democratic candidate include:
- Penzone does not have enough experience and education to run the 3rd largest Sheriff’s county department in the Nation
- Penzone only managed a whopping 6 employees.
- Penzone has a domestic violence background.
- Were the Penzone’s “above the law” in their domestic fight? Why didn’t anyone go to jail with our mandatory Arizona law?
Some of the highlights on the Independent candidate we support via Mike Stauffer from his own site:
I am a 29-year police veteran.
I believe strongly in the rule of law as guided by the founding principles of the United States. I believe in providing professional law enforcement and public safety services to all Maricopa County residents. I am guided by the Constitutional principles of due process and equality under the law as originally intended by the Founding Fathers.
I am concerned with the current state of law enforcement in Maricopa County. The constant string of lawsuits and lack of cooperation on the part of the Sheriff’s Office with other law enforcement agencies has seriously degraded the quality of public safety in the county. The current sheriff has turned away from crime prevention and suppression in favor of political grandstanding and expansion of power.
I pledge to work to improve inter-agency communication and cooperation between all law enforcement in Maricopa County on all levels.
“The “go it alone,” “rule through fear and intimidation” attitude of the Arpaio administration is inappropriate in dealing with today’s public safety issues. What is needed is strong cooperation and mutual respect between law enforcement leadership and personnel in Maricopa County. This new relationship will strengthen our ability to insure the safety and quality of life for all residents of Maricopa County. We will work together with all local, state and federal law enforcement and homeland security agencies to make this our top priority.”
I have been a member of the law enforcement community since 1983. I began my career with the NYPD as an Auxiliary Police Officer, while earning my undergraduate degree in Government at St. John’s University. Upon graduation, I went on to a full time career with NYPD.
I worked as a patrol officer in Manhattan and Brooklyn. I served as one of the first canine handlers in the NYPD’s Canine Unit. I worked in the elite Narcotics Division in Manhattan as a narcotics investigator.
I came to Maricopa County in 1991 and joined the Scottsdale Police Department. I have served as a patrol officer and patrol sergeant. I also served as the department’s Staff Lieutenant, supervising the Internal Affairs Unit, the Public Information and Media Office, and the Budget Office. Currently, I am serving as a Patrol Watch Commander in the Patrol Division in Scottsdale’s Downtown District.
In addition to serving the community in crime prevention I am an online instructor for the Criminal Justice program at the University of Phoenix. I am an instructor of Constitutional Law at the Arizona Law Enforcement Academy.
I have been married to my wife, Grace, for 27 years. I am the proud father of three successful young adults.
