VENTURA COUNTY LETTERS

Sheriff Department's Retirement Plan

January 20, 2002

Till now, I've been undecided on what position to take in the debate over the sheriff's retirement plan, especially since I have a friend who is a retired deputy.

A letter in the Ventura County section Jan. 13 by Randy Workman was the clincher for me. I applaud him for the courage to write, I believe, what most people think but are reluctant to say. He convinced me with his letter.

I especially liked when he wrote, "If they threaten to strike or walk out, replace them like President Reagan did to the air traffic controllers."

I recall that the system worked just as well (if not better) afterward. Again, though I don't know you, thanks, Randy, for saying what is, it seems, politically incorrect and for having the courage to do so.
