It’s time for a new Erie County sheriff

Recently, on Tom Bauerle’s radio program, Sheriff Tim Howard stated that he cannot enforce gun laws he finds unconstitutional. As sheriff of Erie County, this is not his decision to make. His primary responsibility is to enforce the law, not interpret it. The statement he made violates his oath of office.

Howard has also not met his responsibilities with regard to the Erie County Holding Center. Over the years, numerous violations have been reported there. Howard is up for re-election this year. It is time for a change, and we need a new sheriff in town.
