Default Chad Bianco for RIV CO sheriff 2018

Chad Bianco is going to run for sheriff in 2018. He is very pro 2A and a way better guy than Stan Sniff. I know it is early still but last time Chad got 48 % of the vote on a shoestring budget.

This time he has the support of the Riverside Sheriff's Association.

I voted for him the last time and would do so again. That said and not to be a naysayer, running against an incumbent and winning is very difficult. I speak with some knowledge on this subject having seen it done with my former dept. A Capt. and a sgt. ran against Baca at one point. After their loss, I heard, and I know that is hearsay, they were both told that was the end of any advancement in their career. True or not, I can't imagine that a sitting Sheriff would be too pleased having a subordinate running against him. Ironically, Baca ran against Block, an incumbent and won.

Also, what is common and actually occurred with Sniff, is the incumbent Sheriff will resign prior to his end of term and request the BOS appt. his personal choice (usually the Undersheriff) to the post. That way, when he runs for election (not reelection Sheriff Sniff), he is the incumbent. If Sniff plans on retiring, he will probably follow what is a tradition on some departments.

I hope Lt. Bianco wins this time. If he does, I foresee ccw permits being issued on a much grander scale. I fortunately have mine from my former dept. and I would like to see those who want it and qualify, join me in having one and not at an exorbitant price. I just read something in the paper in the last week or so that said it cost $900! If that is true, that is asinine. A person should not have to pay that much for one and I find it hard to believe the expenses are such to justify it. The article was about how the Chief of Beaumont PD was going to begin issuing them because of the huge backlog with the County. Banning's Chief stated he was looking to see how that went to decide if he would follow. So there is some hope for the citizens of those cities.

I hear you. I know Chad was "punished" after the last election but I think he may be able to pull it off this time.

I talked to him several times at rally's and he seemed like a very knowledgeable person. I don't live in California any more but I still support him.

I was able to get my CCW here for 100 dollars good for 8 years. Nothing changed between here and California. Strange how that works.

Sniff got right on it after the last election... the wait for an initial interview is down to only 18 months...

One of my neighbors lived in Oregon a few years ago. He walked in the local sheriff's office and walked out with his permit. Hmmm...

When I moved to Tennessee I had to take an 8 hour class, go to DMV and pay 100 dollars and about 3 weeks later in the mail came my CCW good for 8 years.

Agree. Hopefully we'll get someone who will issue without idiotic restrictions.

Great news! I supported him last around will support again . . . heck, I even have my official 2014 yellow and black "Bianco for Sheriff" yard sign ready to go again.

If recall correctly, Sheriff Sniff will be 69 in 2018, so really time for some new leadership and Lt. Bianco is certainly the right man.

I remember reading somewhere a while back that Sheriff Sniff supported the idea of not allowing CCW holders to carry on school grounds. I thought he vetted us. guess not!

Baca only won because Block died.
