There was a deputy who committed two burglaries in Storey County. A witness saw the deputy outside the home as a lookout while the civilian was inside searching the home. They took prescription medicine. He also abused a handicap woman, told her she lived like a pig and she was too cripple to walk up the steps to the home after he broke into her home. This deputy was reported in April 2014 and still he patrols (robs) my neighborhood. Jerry cannot handle the power that has been given him. He is abusing it, oppressing people. The monster will grow if we allow another term.

Political?!?! Really people??? Why would Sheriff Antinoro place his opposing candidate on PAID leave? To give him more time to meet political commitments with a paycheck? Sounds as intellectual as voting a candidate in who has no administrative experience, as well as no regard for policy and procedures set forth for all office employees!!! And you want someone like this to head up and set an example for the other employees?? Wake up residents!!

This is NOT the first time Mr. Mahan has been placed on administrative leave. And he was not a candidate before. So why do you assume political motivation?
