Sheriff Looking for Deputy Applications — 8 Comments

  1. I see there’s no requirement that the applicant cannot be a convicted felon.

    What about dual nationality —- like Tadelman?

    Application fee? Funny.

  2. Robb Tadelman has been doing a great job! Imagine if Colatori was Sheriff / Chef/ Kenneally Butt Boy?

  3. Raise the pay and dumb down the criteria for hire. GED was always a LEO job killer…not no mo….

  4. Slapdyck B. Kinnally a/k/a Rob Hanlon a/k/a “the automobile puker”

    Quit covering for Tadelboi.

    Do you owe him something?

    I see you miraculously beat your little destroying political signs criminal charges (Tadelrat’s opponent’s signs) despite video footage of your little paws’ handiwork.

    How much did it cost ye?

    Maybe your special computer should be examined by the authorities.

    Lotsa surprises!!!!

    The corruption of this county is pathetic, as are you Hanlon.

  5. Are you implying that you yourself have special devices, “Hixon”?

  6. Slapy are you Hanlon or are you Colatorti’s x wife’s husband? You know meat head, steroid boy?? Either way either one of you are both losers.
