The California Supreme Court rejected a request by sheriff candidate Joel “Tom” Toler to have his name placed on the June ballot, letting stand a lower court ruling that he lacks the necessary qualifications.
Here are some comments from an article on the ruling:
- There it is. Enough if this comedy show. Maybe next election, someone who truly is qualified, academically and within the law enforcement community, will step up and challenge (Thomas) Farrara. Toler will never be that person.
- At least Tom Toler stepped up and tried to fight the corruption in our county government. What’s anyone else done? Is everyone else just happy to let corruption continue on for a couple more generations?
- The Toler saga is history but you still have a choice, educate yourself. Write-in or give in.
- I’ve been following these rants and raves about our county sheriff being “corrupt,” yet I haven’t heard any specifics about the corruption. If you can’t be specific and point out the corruption and file charges, then no law has been broken, which makes me wonder why the same people continue to complain.
