I am writing this letter to let the voters of Imperial County really know what is going on at the Sheriff's Office.
I am so tired of hearing Ernie Mendoza say that the morale in the department is down. How would he know? He is never there. He (Mendoza) has been off work for most of the past six months. Ernie Mendoza says that Sheriff Carter is not accessible — Mendoza is the person that hasn't been accessible. The few days he did come to work he didn't even check in with the corrections division he is responsible for.
Sheriff Carter always makes time to meet with employees who would like to speak with him, regardless of their position within the department.
Sheriff Carter cares about his employees. To help build morale Sheriff Carter implemented the employee-of-the-month program. Since he took office we had our first-ever family picnic and held two family awards ceremonies. Morale is the best I have ever experienced! Please remember, it is impossible to please everyone all the time.
