I'm sorry but i feel we all must do without from time to time as most El Pasoans do especially during the rough times that we're in right now.As a retired person on a fixed income i have no more to spare and if it means fewer on duty and patrol then so be it!!! Sheriff Wiles has always been a great leader in command and a fiscally sound administrator. He'll do the thing.

It is an outrage that our peace keepers are being targeted with budget cuts. With the violence going on across the border, I believe our officers should be paid more because they are risking their lives to protect us. If we don't want Juarez's violence or drug dealers on our streets we need to be considerate and acknowledge their hard work by raising their salaries.

the sheriff should run for mayor!
