Sheriffs gone wild! Early voting ends this Friday! Vote for Eckhardt
Get this! The Travis County Sheriffs Law Enforcement Association is attacking Sarah
Eckhardt with a $10K donation from Gary Farmer! Why? Because Sarah Eckhardt tried
to rein them in from a whopping 11% pay increase -- when they're the highest paid
force in the state!
Farmer is a Republican "heavy hitter" who gave Greg Abbott $50K, Andy Brown $2500,
and is a Formula 1 Booster, and a big cheese at the Chamber of Commerce and Real
We butted heads with Farmer in 2008 when he played a pivotal role in ensuring the
Domain luxury mall continued to receive lavish taxpayer subsidies. (Farmer also
personally testified against prevailing wages as a requirement for another city
subsidy, the Marriott Hotel).
Now get this! The ungrateful Sheriffs are putting out false claims that Sarah Eckhardt
should be rejected because she "voted for her own pay raise." This is...pardon the
phrase...a bunch of hogwash!
The truth is:
Eckhardt not only tried to ratchet back the Sheriff's demands for 11%, but she also
refused to take her own pay increases repeatedly, and even when the County made
an accounting error sending her too much, she sent it back!
Get your friends out, folks. In a small turnout election...it counts a whole helluva
