  1. You mean the FOP who is being investigated for misappropriation of PAC funds endorsed a person that is in bed with the FOP president? Shocking…

    1. you mean a collective group of public servants want a new states attorney? It’s not like they do a bunch of hard work, just for the current SA to catch and release everyone.

      1. I am a member of the FOP 7 this is just a fraud they didn’t even tell every member that there was going to be a vote so this is just BS

        1. they publicly announced it on their facebook, giving times, locations, etc on the voting… weird how you stay anonymous yet say you are a member.

    2. Get your facts straight before you try to discredit Our FOP, seems like you are one of Fritz’s good old boys and you don’t want to see your good old boy leave when you need more favors. Sterling will be a breath of fresh air to St. Mary’s County.

      1. Breath of backsliding didn’t she resign due to some irresponsible acts within her own office when she was states attorney. She has proven that she cannot handle stress. She should not have stepped down rather iniated an investigation instead of running to her STEP father like a baby. Now she wants the county to trust in her failed ablilities. No thank you. She has character flaws. The county’s judicial system is fractured and that is why there are so many issues in the area. Popularity contests and the good old boy system is clearly a fail. Get rid of all of them and start fresh they are all criminals and frauds. Wait…does she reside in our county…

  2. The FOP manipulated this vote. In the past, there were HOURS that we police could come in and vote. Some of us are on the street policing, writing reports, responding to calls, etc. This year there was one dedicated time to vote… they stacked the deck! Dont let Sterling’s dirty politics fool you!

  3. Half the police department wouldn’t be around if the pay raise never happened lol thanks to the ones who really care
