Support King Carona—or else!

Just when you thought it was safe to start trusting your Sheriff, another story shows up in the paper accusing Mike Carona of firing employees for backing Lt. Bill Hunt in the June 6th race.

Darrell Poncy is claiming that he was removed from his job at the Sheriff’s department (where he worked for 27 years) because of his vocal support for Hunt.

Poncy called the move “blatantly, blatanly political.”

He said he received a call on Feb. 22 from Lt. Mike Hiller, the academy commander, saying he was barrede from being an instructor there because of his “personal attacks” against the sheriff.
