I received a "Mims for Sheriff" flier while doing yard work on Oct. 7. I couldn't help but notice her promise to Fresno County that she "will not let even one prisoner out of jail early due to overcrowding."
We all agree, including Cal Minor, that every person put in jail should pay their debt to society, but let's be honest with the voters of this county. Assistant Sheriff Margaret Mims knows that releases due to overcrowding are because of the federal court order limiting the inmate population to the design capacity of the jail.
This incorrect information from Assistant Sheriff Mims is just another reason why Cal Minor is who Fresno County should support for our next sheriff.
