Are they going to give yo some money so you can at least have the appearance of a real candidate?

Is there any rule when it comes to legitimate debates? I think it may be some sort of policy that in order to participate in a debate that you had to have so many primary votes or signatures on petitions or something. Do you expect to be invited to any debates?

MCSDEXPOSED has an article up talking about Zane and Nygren at the newspaper being asked questions about issues. Do you have any knowledge that will be relevent if you are ask to attend such a it down?

Are you preparing yourself or just chasing deputies around waiting for a mistake?

My campaign is not funded by the Green Party. I don't believe the Green Party has any type of huge warchest to fund candidates' campaigns. Neither is it funded by vendors to the County nor any deputies/employees. And not by any corporations, either.

Certainly I'll participate in all debates for the office of Sheriff.

I haven't read Zane's article, and I'm not chasing any deputies around.
