Our organization, Citizens For Democracy, endorses and supports county sheriff candidate David Livingston. He’s your answer to holding down the county’s violent crimes and prosecuting the responsible criminals. Please vote for Chief David Livingston for sheriff in June.
His opponent, Antioch’s Councilman Brian Kalinowski, hasn’t even protected the people in Antioch. So how can he protect the entire county? Under his watch Antioch’s violent crimes have increased an outrageous additional 62 percent more these past four years. Antioch’s public mistakenly relied on him. He hasn’t protected Antioch’s public and more people have been violently victimized. He’s failed badly, while claiming to have the public’s safety as a priority. He blames others and won’t admit to his own incompetence. Antioch’s shoppers, visitors, and residents have been in more violence prone danger than ever before. It isn’t getting any safer under Kalinowski’s faulty leadership.
Judge for yourselves; see through his veil of deception, excuses and sweet-talking empty promises that he’s woven. There are available independent public facts in Antioch’s reported deplorable violent crimes statistics, via DOJs and the FBI’s Statistics Units’ records. Antioch’s public has been in more violence danger under his leadership.
We have additionally been going before the Antioch City Council, during Councilman Kalinowski’s terms, and tried to get him to address the climbing violent crimes increase of 62 percent more these past four years, to no avail. He’s instead vigorously chased lesser issues such as the color of car covers, residents’ infractions like leaving out their garbage bins at curbside too long, RV and boat owners having more than one of such on their own property, and the questionable targeting of poor families receiving housing assistance (which the city/public has since been sued for in at least three separate federal lawsuits). He’s nothing more than a bumbling, ineffective and incompetent elected official, at the expense of our community’s safety, no less.
Don’t waste your votes. Kalinowski’s betrayed and deceived the public. Your votes should be for the proven, effective and experienced crime-fighting candidate David Livingston, a police chief. He has held crime down under his own leadership. We believe that David Livingston will do the same for the county as our sheriff.
Our public endorsement and support for sheriff’s candidate David Livingston is also our recommendation for your votes. For your anticipated future safety, vote for David Livingston for county sheriff.
