I have seen comments inferring that my not endorsing a Sheriff candidate was a negative vote for Cori Merryman. I reiterate; the reason that I am not endorsing a Sheriff candidate is that, as Mayor, I do not speak for the City and that the professionals in the City of Kingman Police Department must have a very positive interface with whomever is elected Sheriff. I do not in any way want to compromise that relationship. This has nothing to do with respect for Ms Merryman or any other candidate – it is just not appropriate to endorse ANY Sheriff candidate.
