Funny - I receive no benefit in regards to who wins or loses. I no longer work or live in the area. I worked for Ralph for several years and I know all of these people very well. I have a great deal of respect for most all of them. Ralph does not deserve respect and does not give it either. Tom pledged his support to Chief Adkinson - met with Ralph - met with Sunday and then threw his hat in ring of fire. Tom Cooper has extreme ties to Ralph, Stan, Jason, and the rest of the crew. Tom is a good person but has been out of Law Enforcement for many years. I am not saying anything bad about Tom...if you do not think this is political chess, think again.
