Martinez should attend meetings, voice his views

June 19, 2013 12:00 am

Officer Oscar Martinez believes he has the knowledge to lead the Lake County Sheriff's Department. This coming from an individual who does not attend the county commissioners' meetings, County Council meetings, the Sheriff's Merit Board meetings or the FOP meetings.

It seems to me the only thing Martinez has prepared himself to do is to blame everyone except himself for the department's issues.

If he is so concerned, why is he not voicing his opinion at any of these meetings? I guess if you have no new ideas it's safer to play the blame game!
