This is good news: Most people know him simply as “Sheriff Joe” - the self-proclaimed toughest lawman in the United States. And, apparently, the five-term boss of the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office in Phoenix wants another four years.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio formally announced his re-election campaign Thursday, boasting a record $6 million war chest and promising to “continue to protect the citizens of Maricopa County by enforcing all the laws.” That would include immigration law that has gotten the sheriff and his department crosswise with the Justice Department in Washington.
“It is an honor and a privilege to serve as sheriff of Maricopa County,” said the embattled 79-year-old sheriff, who had considered a run for the U.S. Senate seat in Arizona being vacated by Republican Sen. Jon Kyl but determined “there was still much work to do as sheriff.” http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/jan/5/sheriff-arpaio-announces-re-election-bid-arizona/
I love Sheriff Joe and his policies and they way he tweaks the noses of liberals. I'm pretty sure most people of Maricopa feel the same way.
Good luck in your re-election, Sheriff Joe.
