Recall Larry Deen?
Should Bossier Parish sheriff Larry Deen be recalled?
That seems to be the conclusion of Jeff Sadow on his blog, Between the Lines.
In an article this week about the sheriff, Sadow discussed the tax ‘roll-forward’ and the hearing that was held for the public.
He also gets into facts and figures regarding the financing of the sheriff’s operation for the last 10 years as compared to the same period in Caddo Parish.
His conclusion: “While we could wait to deny him reelection, given his indifferent performance, wastefulness, and the contempt that he shows to dissent it would not be untoward to recall him now.”
While that is obviously an exercise in rhetoric, the sheriff is up for re-election next year.
From what I hear, it is likely that he will have an opponent.
Having an opponent who can unseat a popular incumbent, however, is something else entirely.
