Jensen seems a little confused about what the results of the election mean.

When you win an election 60% to 40%, it is NOT a mandate that you "find a new job or retire".

It it ACTUALLY means is that the people are happy with the job Laurie Smith has done and is doing.

I'm glad Mr. Jensen was not elected, because it seems that his perception of reality is a bit off base.

with what...about 70% voting-- nearly 90% of the deputies gave Smith a no confidence vote.

But hey, if you want a sheriff that basically sells concealed gun permits to people, she's your woman. She should hook up with Leland Yee
