The 2018 Battle for the Badge With Gary Stevens, Pat Garrahan & Rick Dibasilio

San Andreas, CA...Our county should feel gratitude that there are 3 qualified men that care enough about their communities to throw their hats in the ring and run for the office of Sheriff. The candidates are Gary Stevens, Pat Garrahan and appointed Sheriff Rick Dibasilio. Thank You to all of you who emailed in questions!! Of the 70 or so questions we tried to distill them down into the dominate themes such as school safety, cannabis, staffing, vision for the department & more. All three men would provide quality and qualified leadership to the department. The choice is yours and hopefully the video from last night can help you make that decision. We would like to thank Ed Lark and his crews at PATV for not only recording the show for local television but for preparing sound system and venue for last night. Thank You to all of you who attended in person and take the time to watch the video below...




PATV Has Finished Their Video and it is Below

Gary Stevens is a clear and present danger to Calaveras County. He was a dirty cop back before he had to move to Amador. He will be a liability and threat to the people of this county.

          If you aren't aware of gary and his bad reputation, his clear and present dangerous harassment regardless of criminal or non crimal behaviors you're an idiot. You do not know his history, there was a reason for his hiatus. This has nothing to do with marijuana you fool. Go back to the flatlands you dumb ass transplant. And good luck if he wins, we'll all be screwed. Including yourself, snowflake...

This is why many of us have banned angels crap, he represents hate.

                Your vitriol and numbing, uncompelling rhetoric reveal you are likely a pro-commercial cultivation, probably whiney one-topic person because you can't do what you want when you want, despite it's horrible effects on our county and its environment (and yes - our pocketbook in trying to clean up this mess), and that you are likely anti-law enforcement, anyway. Evidently you cannot recognize a seasoned and sound law enforcement chief. You are easily transparent.

                  You're pretty funny, that was very humorous and quite fascist as well. I'm very sad for the fact you're such an angry human being that judges in this manner. Extremely lonely and sick minded. No, I am not a grower, nor have anything to do with commercial growing you ass licking xenophobic. But you are as transparent as rice paper, have no respect for honest human behavior, probably love trump, racist as hell, and would suck todd fordahls butt hole clean as a whistle. Good for you antisemitic nazi bastard p.o.s.

      Same about the funds. I guess Stevens didn't listen to the budget meeting. Money go bye-bye. Taking a card out of the banner book filled with lies. I don't want a Sheriff that blatantly lies to all citizens like we are some dumb dumbs. Honesty is the best policy for dealing with reality. He might even be more delusional than Mills, TOF and Clapp. I didn't think that was possible.

          Or, you know see the county prosper, see law enforcement fully funded, see retirements funded, see youth programs and parks funded, see libraries open, see low job rates, see restaurants full, more resource officers in schools, meals on wheels new vehicles ;) , businesses doing well, the environment protected, and the black market regulated out of business. But hey, that's just me. Pro regulation doesn't mean pro marijuana. The sooner you figure that out the better we will all be.

            With the internet, there should only be one book library in the county seat that has mainly internet access for those who do not have it. Pensions should be saved by the individual. Parents should pay for their own child regarding school and activities. All the good restaurants are full. The needed businesses are doing fine. Most decent caring families take their elder relatives a hot meal, move them in with the family, or find an assisted living situation for them. There was a black market on pot before, during and after the rush. Just like why some people buy stuff from China and Walmart, they like cheap. Besides the Sheriff, Fire and emergency, other county offices do not need new vehicles, several years out is just fine. County parks if wanted and needed should be funded by fundraisers, local donations (the people who use them) and the towns they are in. Environment protected, yeah pot has done that, no it has not. All the dumped fertilizer, pesticide and poison. Most every Mother Lode town and surrounding lands are still caustic soils from the heavy metals, arsenic and poisons of mining. Farming items consumed in the human body, in the Mother Lode is not a good idea. That includes wine and food. Less big government and people sitting in offices is less taxes we all have to pay. The sooner you figure that out the better we will all be.

                  That's why there are big cities for those who do not want to be frugal, and want all the services. Don't want to be self reliant, frugal (live within their means) or think for themselves. Those who want others to pay, build and do things for them.

                  Most here did not give a sheet about the creator given weed that has been around since the beginning of time. That was until our state failed to maintain our border, allowing illegal immigrants to take over our public lands. You were not safe to even go hiking or camping in our beautiful wilderness. You want some weed? Grow your 6 plants indoors. Go to the valley and get your weed products.

            Pro-regulation is not possible here as seen in the past two years. Have you not experienced the 2-year experiment? You are suggesting something already tried - and messed up. We already have the laws to have individual marijuana. Want to grow it? Do it in the Valley or the Emerald Triangle. We don't need water trucks on our small roads, draining of the already low water table in Diamond 20 and other places. Please. Commercial marijuana is not good for our county. It doesn't pay either. Marijuana prices are falling. Philip Morris and RJ Reynolds are in the wings waiting - and they will be undercut by Chinese business. That's the future. So no thank you.

              i have watched the experiment and it has been succeeding. The legal grows have been wonderful and more respectful than their curmudgeon neighbors. They pay taxes and have more rules and oversight than any other business. So thanks for reminding me what this is all about. Stick in the Mud People Who do not want to change because they got theirs!

                Oh but not so fast. I'm glad you have good experiences, but you might not have looked closely. Did you see the bulldozers grading and creating improper drainage? Did you see those "legal" growers terracing the land while removing the valuable topsoil? Did you see the trucks hauling in "amendments"and fertilizers, water trucks, and the pumping of wells until they are overdrawn? You do know marijuana uses a tremendous amount of water? The line between "legal" and "illegal" grows is irregular and certainly not defined.

It is unfortunate on many levels. The information is not accurate and definitely doesn't provide the full picture of the work or costs involved in the abatement program. When I return next week, it might be nice to catch up on your thoughts regarding the vehicles. I completely agree with your assessment on the cars, the issue is how to get where we all want to be with the Sheriff.

What days/times would work to meet?

Thanks.

Good evening,

In an article posted this evening on Mymotherlode.com our Sheriff revealed "while the county reportedly took in about $8.5 million, not everyone paid". This is blindsiding the board as we are getting emails from his statements challenging the numbers and yet the board has not been given these numbers. He further states "it is being moved around and transported" which is an openly clear violation of the UO.

I noticed there was no acknowledgement of the efforts on the part of the board and our CAO to find ways to support what the Sheriffs office needed in the budget and debunk the "cuts" often repeated during budget hearings along with the old high mileage patrol vehicles. The vehicle situation after looking over the fleet report was an internal decision on the part of the department to provide senior staff the new vehicles in recent budgets.

We need a policy that requires vehicles owned by the county to be identified as such. There is room for abuse when vehicles are unmarked and does not help us in gaining the needed law enforcement exposure we should have at this time.

"While at least three of the county's five supervisors still seem bent towards bringing a ban into law" is a regrettable statement from the Sheriff. If we are to be working together here, this is not how it's done.

Disappointed,

    Tim,

    This is important enough, I will make whatever time available needed to correct this public infighting. The county needs to have a unified front in all matters when viewed from the public. The Sheriff is not showing a willingness to be a team player here in my opinion. We, the county, should consider a press release to provide the correct information. You and members of the board have been willing to work with the Sheriff to allay his concerns and show support. Relationships are important and this personal attack on three Supervisors in the media is not a mature way to handle problems.

    You have never heard me attack people in public, either from the Board or in the Press as my discussions have been on issues not people and I will not engage in this sort of juvenile behavior in a public forum. I am never "offended" by the opinions of fellow Supervisors as that is an emotional response and they have a right to develop those sentiments and express them in their own way.

    "at least three of the county's five supervisors still seem bent towards bringing a ban into law". Sheriff Rick DiBasilio Mymotherlode July 28,2107

    The board direction is exactly that, whether any elected or appointed employee of the county has an opinion, that is the current direction of the county. It will be required that staff comply with that direction and not create public discord because they disagree with the direction. If they want to help create policy, then run for the Board because that is where policy is made.

    Thanks for responding,

      It's interesting that Mills feels it important to correct the public infighting when he is at the root of it! He undermines Supervisor Garamendi whenever he can in a VERY public manner. If one could stamp a perpetual look of disgust on his face, it would be more than fitting. He challenges Supervisors Garamendi and Oliveira whenever possible, and often in an undiplomatic manner. It appears it's much easier for Supervisor Mills to point fingers at others than it is to look at himself in the mirror.

      Gary Stevens do these emails between Tim and Dennis sound like the sheriff does whatever the BOS tell him now? You stated at the Republican forum that the sheriff does whatever the county wants. Not true. Sounds like he stands his ground when it comes to department needs and the county always fights it. They did the same thing with Kuntz. He had to fight and argue to get anything for the department because all the county wants to do is cut cut cut

    I don't think so. In watching him debate, he was having a hard time speaking and breathing at the same time. An obvious double chin and moobs. He is very likely a large medical liability for the county. Can we ask for a full physical from an independent source?

        Gary Kuntz was an in shape good looking young deputy in our county in the beginning. Here he was still not too bad of shape. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCPPRV7l4zo&t=23s (by the way that is another violent crime in our county.)

        Pretty sad that he got so obese in the end. But, the did spend a huge measure of his career and life trying to protect us here. He was a very long time member of our community.

        RIP Sheriff Gary Kuntz.

          I actually miss kuntz, my point was we don't need a sheriff that's a body builder. We need a logical one. Gary stevens is not that. I knew kuntz my husband was best friends with his son. It's too bad he passed away, never meant to offend you. I agree g kuntz was one of the good guys. Rip kuntz

    Pat Garrahan is in with the growers, who are have big plans on this county, while the price of marijuana plummets. Don't worry about RJ Reynolds or Philip Morris buying out the small grows. The plans are much worse. No thank you Mr. Garrahan.

On his FB page Stevens is saying the debate was rigged because he did so awful probably. Dude sounds like a total bully and I don’t think he would honor the law but would probably be “on the take” by the ways he sounds. Sounded like he should run district attorney or something.

    Perception is interesting. Especially if you do not know who you are voting for. Stevens wants to disassemble the leadership positions. That is scary.
    Garrahan, thinks the moral is low. He through a West Point deputy under the bus.
    DiBasilio is not perfect. But one point that was very clear. There was no debate with the sheriff candidates a year and a half ago.
    Sounds like Stevens is not up to date on things taking place at the sheriff office. Most items have been implemented for a long time. Not just a month.
    The best point of the night for me.
    If you think the Feds will come and help us and the sheriff isn't calling for help. Then you should be sharing so we can get help.
    The sharing was a total flop. Stevens eventing you talked about was old news with D. Mills.
    I think my mind was made up last night. I'll wait for the next Friday. Sheriff Rick. You are looking good at the moment.

One of my concerns with any law enforcement personnel is that they need to keep in shape. Only Rick looks like he is in the physical condition to do police work. Both the others are a bit older and certainly do not have the physical appearance to look healthy.
Also, I see Stevens as appearing to think that he will be able to make sure that there is no pot growers in our county and speaks as though he believe that the sheriff makes the laws. That is disturbing to me since the sheriff may not like the laws, but never the less is sworn to enforce them whatever they may be.

    The Sheriff rarely is the first guy in on a bust, so while Rick looks like he is in the best physical condition to do police work, it really has little impact. Not to mention we all know who REALLY runs the department, yet refuses to live IN county.
    The sheriff may not like the laws, but never the less is sworn to enforce them whatever they may be. Seems that the current rule is -- assuming we're talking cannabis -- is a BAN. That being said, that suits Gary Stevens just fine.

Mine was gone pretty quickly, Every single comment I wrote about "we remember" gary stevens was removed. And others peoples too, some that weren't even remotely derogatory, vulgar ect. Even some have been removed in promoting pat as sheriff. I find it pretty unbelievable. So yes someone has a big hard on for gary stevens.

And as for Mills, (Gary's sidekick) before you have any input on legal issues maybe you should spay and neuter your cats, try following the law yourself you have about 80 cats that keep reproducing, they have eye infections etc.. that is neglect on your part and I'm pretty sure thats against the law.
