    Don't know Winder, but I DO know of Babka from his extremely short tenure in southern California-Orange County. He wasn't highly regarded professionally or personally and wasn't able to get hired as a California Peace Officer so he moved to Utah. He had a "tenure" of sorts as a Reserve Officer in Orange County wherein he achieved some notoriety for stepping on certain appendages of his own. I was SHOCKED to see him as an actual "peace officer" here in Utah. Guess everyone gets a "fresh start" but he is a shameless SELF-PROMOTER first and foremost, always has been, always will be.

    There are some excellent law enforcement officers serving the public. But because of a few Police Brutes the title "Top Cop" appears to be a negative connotation.

    For people who live in unincorporated County this should be a "no-brainer".

    If you like the idea of "fees" (on top of your already high tax bill)you certainly SHOULD go ahead and vote for the guy that gave them to you.


    So your saying we should vote for Herbert since Carroon and the county council were clearly the ones that gave us this fee?

    I know both of these candidates.

    Jim Winder is an outstanding cop, who works side-by-side with his officers. Last time I saw him, he was standing in an intersection, directing traffic for a funeral.

    Beau Babka has changed political parties TWICE in order to run for office. He's a career politician in a uniform.
