Sheriff Stan Sniff has no platform from which to make any judgments about the County Budget. Let’s start in order of what we’ve chronicled about Stan Sniff and the County Budget:
We did an expose’ on a $104,000 (now over $120K a year) position dedicated to Legislative Affairs. That job is currently held by the wife of Jason Gore, a central figure in the cheating scandal, who is also high on the list to be “Friend of Stan” promoted to Sergeant. Mrs. Gore and another county employee known as Eggplant Yvonne haul down a cool $250K between them (in total compensation). Both are reputed to be actively engaged in campaign related activity during business hours.
Stan Sniff: I will leave the new jail empty. That’s right, he said it.
Even back in 2009, Sniff was getting blasted for things like $52-$60 an hour part time jobs that were costing Hundreds of Thousands out of the budget.
And there is this:
3039 total offenders*
375 in current violation*
*California Department of Justice – Megan’s Law Database, December 2017
Sheriff Stan Sniff is unaware of the location of at least 375 court-certified sex offenders.
More than 12% of all the registered sex offenders in Riverside County have gone missing and the sheriff has failed to correct this embarrassing threat to our children and wives.
To put this into perspective, even Hemet, the crime violent crime Capitol of Riverside County has only lost track of 4% of their registered sex offenders.
Sniff has lost track of sex offenders at a rate three times that of Hemet.
Crime remains at unacceptable levels throughout Riverside County even as the Sheriff plays politics with Jail Staffing and staffing levels at key county sheriff stations.
Stan Sniff can not look at anyone and claim fiscal responsibility. The myriad scandals, many that relate to milking pay and misappropriating County Resources will be detailed again in future posts. Suffice to say, the scandals add an exclamation point to the disaster that has beset the Riverside Sheriff’s Office under Stan Sniff’s leadership.
Sheriff Sniff continually blames others for his inability to effectively manage and lead the Sheriffs Department while failing to keep Riverside County residents safe. Meantime, the Sheriff Sniff department is overrun with corruption and cover-ups. What else are we going to find out about Stan Sniff’s department?
Remember, as always we will talk to anyone with information and you can remain anonymous.
