Are the Sheriff candidates really fit?
This is an excerpt from a Chief Adkinson post on SoWal... just the messenger y'all...
"...I am glad to hear that several of the other candidates have now adopted my position on unifying 911/dispatch services, which is a pillar of my platform. Also, in the DFSP 2007/08 budget, we were able to find almost $90,000 that was erroneously diverted from the police department's budget over the course of 10 years. That money was placed into our budget to allow us to put computers in our cars at no cost to the taxpayer.
We then found that for the last 28 years, the city of DeFuniak Springs helped subsidize the Sheriff's training budget instead of funding its own police department. The training budget was so underfunded that in 2005 the training budget for the entire agency was only $593.00. Since then, we have increased the training budget to $15,000 for the 2008/09 budget, thereby increasing our level of service and professionalism. We also added a fitness policy with a financial incentive (2006/7)."
I don't really need to point out the obvious here do I? What is the Chief's weight? 350...400 (+)?
In all fairness, look at Cooper, Macon , and Cornman...let's talk "fitness."
Apples and oranges? Who would YOU want to follow into battle? Fitness: Cornman or Macon? All things considered...experience, skills, etc., etc., : CORNMAN!
I know...I know... the Sheriff doesn't need to set the example... WHAT?

It looks like quite a few have had too many doughnuts! I think Macon is the only one who looks like he's physically fit!

This is not an "attack," this info is public, placed by the candidate publicly, I am merely pointing out what I thought to be a bit of a double-standard.
One last thing sir, your high-road reply defending the candidate by accusing me of "attacking" him and then in the same sentence attack me personally shows you to be a hypocrite. Calling you a hypocrite is not attacking you, it is an obvious fact.

Or maybe why not just say you are a Cornman supporter and move on?
See you, your favorite hypocrite signing out!

"in tha face of diversity. Maybe you should seek a fitness program yourself."
In the face of 'diversity?' Is that in the face of foriegners, gays, etc., is that the diversity you are referring to? And I need a "fitness program?" LOL!

At first reading I too thought this post was below the belt. I have long thought that we judge candidates far too much on physical appearance. However, Mr. Adkinson did bring it up, and the matter does speak towards leadership or lack thereof. Practicing "do as I say, not as I do" leadership is bad for employee morale and undermines all the inititatives that the leader attempts. When the conduct of the leader causes the employees or the customers to laugh or make fun of the leader that is a terrible blow to the organization. Touting a fitness program when you yourself are obviously out of shape fits that description. Therefore, Mr. Hawk might not be as far out in left field as I thought when I first read the post.
