Livingston vying for county sheriff post

Original post made on Apr 27, 2010

David Livingston isn't used to running a campaign, but has had a crash course in it once he decided to run for Contra Costa County Sheriff. The Danville resident says he's ready for the challenge of the top post, given his experience as the current Concord police chief and former chief of Pleasant Hill.

I've known Dave Livingston for number of years. He is exactly the right person we need for this tough and challenging job. He has my full support.

Dear Emily,

I have liked Steve Mick for many years and I am going to write-in his name for Sheriff. That is unless Elmer Glasser would accept our nomination as the former "Police Chief" of Alamo. I am sure Steve would join me in supporting Elmer!!

I've also known Dave for a number of years, and know him to be confident and competent, with a degree of humility. He's a great human being and highly qualified for the job with his leadership in Pleasant Hill and Concord. As a local business person, I know him to be supportive and responsive to the business community as well.

Dear Emily,

Since this is a reprint of a campaign news release, plus campaign endorsements, you owe Brian Kalinowski, Dave Livingston's opponent, equal access and time in presenting his candidacy. His website provides a video of Brian answering key questions about how he will serve as Sheriff. Since Danville and Alamo are policed by Sheriff's Deputies, voters should actually study these candidates to understand how each would serve us.

The Deputy Sheriffs' Association is divided on who should be the leader of their department. The Board supported Dave and a slight majority of members supported Brian. Thus, it is up to the voters to study and choose wisely.

Ralph, my sentiments exactly regarding Kalinowski - equal time.

What is the two candidates polices on issuing concealed weapon permits to law-abiding citizens?

What are the positions of the two candidates regarding the easy availability of illegal drugs for use and sales at our Alamo and Danville schools, and what has/is being/will be done about it?
