Anyone have insight on the candidates?

I found this on the TW site from December:
http://www.tulsaworld.com/news/courts/find-out-who-s-considering-a-run-to-replace-stanley/article_c14b530f-fa6e-5737-999e-250821e54e59.html

Campaigning to replace Glanz so far are John Fitzpatrick, Dan Miller and Jim Rice

Fitzpatrick, 59, has been a reserve officer for the Tulsa Police Department for 10 years
 His duties have included work with homicide detectives, the bicycle patrol, retail crime detectives and the Special Investigations Division, according to biographic information he provided.
Fitzpatrick served 14 years as a fighter pilot in the Air National Guard with Tulsa’s 125th Tactical Fighter Squadron. Additionally, he has held senior management positions with companies that include Hewlett-Packard and Harley-Davidson.

Miller, 49, is a Tulsa Police Department corporal who is a detective in the Auto Theft Division. Miller, who said he has 20 years of experience on the police force, worked for 15 years in north Tulsa as a field patrol supervisor, is qualified to go into manmade or natural disaster situations and manage them.

Rice, 61, said he has 30 years of law enforcement experience, including serving as the Oologah police chief from 1980 to 1984. Most recently, Rice said, he spent four years in Mounds as the sergeant in charge of the K-9 Unit. He also said he was a warrant officer in the Marine Corps and a helicopter pilot.

I thought Jim Rice (aka "Mr Shotgun Sams") dropped out of the race?

AUDIO: KWGS Sits Down With Acting Tulsa County Sheriff Michelle Robinette

http://publicradiotulsa.org/term/local-regional

Quote
There’s a new-ish sheriff in town.

Acting Tulsa County Sheriff Michelle Robinette took over in mid-January when then-Acting Sheriff Rick Weigel suddenly retired three months after taking the reins from former Sheriff Stanley Glanz. Robinette made time last week to talk to local reporters.

Public Information Officer Justin Green and top staffers Terry Simonson and Meredith Baker were also in the meeting.

How in the Hell is Terry Simonson still in the game?

Because nothing of real significance has actually changed with TCSO?

During the vehicle pursuit, a deputy tried to make a U-turn on the 21st Street overpass above Interstate 244 to help in the chase. The vehicle behind the deputy struck the cruiser as it turned, Green said. That driver was issued a citation for following too closely.

Is immigration what Tulsans see as a Sheriff's highest priority?   Sounds a bit Arpaio.

Thanks, but I was thinking more about the candidate's TV ads that are currently running.

My poorly made point was that immigration isn't listed in the mission of the Sheriff's office.

Illegal immigration is an overblown issue that gets all the rednecks in a kerfuffle.
