Re: “Road Home Redux

I am in awe of the Bohemians in-depth reporting on critical Sonoma County issues like this one. You are not an alternative, but an exemplary and transcendent publication!

Re: “Juiced

This is a shocking tale of political & media influence and corporate corruption. Congratulations to Will Carruthers and the Bohemian for their hard work in researching and publishing this important piece. Also thanks to Jon Deavers for his additional contribution in this comment section.

Citizen media should share this report widely. Ill do my part.

Re: “Crowdfunded Journalism

Terrific idea. You might want to limit the size of an individuals contribution so there is no undue influence.

Re: “The Road Ahead

I'm an ardent Mutz supporter. The loss was tough, but this is an encouraging piece about Mark Essick and his program. It would be beneficial for the citizens of Sonoma County if Mark reached out to John Mutz for advice on applying Quality Management techniques to the department. This is an approach John developed to change the challenging culture of the LAPD, bringing in top management experts from private industry to provide a true service approach to policing.

Re: “Tone Deaf

Amazing that the Sheriffs Department would try to sneak this by the citizens of Sonoma County. Tone deaf is a polite understatement!

Re: “Action!

Just saw this from John Mutz, candidate for Sonoma County Sheriff:

Re: the decision to bring the polarizing COPS to our community.

I would strongly urge the Sonoma County Sheriffs Office to reconsider their current arrangement to partner with the television show COPS here in our community. At a time when our community is working to rebuild, this seems particularly tone-deaf. I cant imagine any community would want to be portrayed this way on national television, but especially one still very much in a place of recovery and healing.

Even more astonishing, it appears that the Sheriffs Office has chosen Erick Gelhaus to be a liaison for this project the same controversial deputy who killed young Andy Lopez in Roseland in 2013. This decision demonstrates a shocking level of insensitivity and highlights how profoundly out of touch our Sheriffs office is with their community.

Not one part of this project is in the best interests of our communities. I strongly oppose this project, and emphatically urge the department to revisit this decision.

Sheriff Candidate John Mutz
