Our taxpayers deserve better than a Sheriff’s office that is millions of dollars over budget.  A resolution to the financial mismanagement has been promised for the past eight years, but nothing has changed.

The mismanagement of the Sheriff’s Department budget has cost our Santa Clara County taxpayers tens of millions of dollars.

If all of us managed our household budget the way the Sheriff has managed hers, we’d be struggling to pay mortgages and rent and put food on the table for our families.
