Vote Rico S. Giron for San Miguel County Sheriff in the general election on Tuesday November 2, 2010.
As Sheriff of San Miguel County, I will not accept any salary, maybe $1 dollar per year to make everything nice and legal. All monies paid will be put in escrow and used to help WWII Veterans and other persons in need of help, pay for their winter utility bills. Thus, I will be a true servant of the Citizens of San Miguel County. The Sheriff’s yearly salary is $53,000. Over four years that will total $212,000.00 minus $4 in salary that I will take.
A three Citizen Volunteer Distribution Panel will distribute the monies available based on established criteria, safety guidelines and distribution procedures to make sure that the WWII veterans are in fact who they say they are. Anyone caught lying will automatically be permanently barred from any present benefits and future benefits. Only applications in person will be accepted. Children, grandchildren and relatives will not be able to apply on behalf of the WWII Veterans. Exceptions to the established criteria, guidelines and procedures, will be strictly limited and scrutinized by the Panel.
The money will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis with the monies going primarily to WWII Veterans. I have a special place in my heart for WWII Veterans simply because We the People of this great Nation owe that generation of men and women everything. I will tell you why. First of all, I am also a Veteran, I served three years in the U.S. Army, October 1975 through October 1978. Had our WWII Veterans lost the war, We the People would not exist and if we did, We the People would be speaking German or Japanese as our primary language.
When I was a kid I read every book in the Gadsden Middle School on World War II. I was truly inspired by the heroism and bravery of these men and women. There are stories of boys as young as 16 years of age, lying to the recruiter, to enlist in the Armed Forces. Many of these boys fought for the entire war and survived, only to suffer horrible trauma in the form of Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. These men rarely talked about their war experiences. I am lucky, my father-in-law, John "Dinger" Quintana, who fought the entire war in the Pacific theater, from age 18-22 has related many stories to me of the pains and sufferings of the war. This has only confirmed my admiration for these men and women that served and sacrificed so much during that great and horrible ordeal.
This is my small way of thanking this group of amazing men and women that made such great personal sacrifices to defend our Country and the rest of the World. Perhaps my actions in this manner will inspire other Citizens of San Miguel County to step forward and help with this effort by contributing money for the fourth months of distributions.
This benefit will be distributed to the WWII Veterans regardless of party affiliation. The WWII Veterans will be eligible regardless of whether they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or other party affiliation. With this money Giron will bridge the differences between all political parties.
The monies available will be distributed for the months of December, January, February and March.
I will never know to whom the money is distributed and the records will be sealed from my eyes and I will have no personal say as to who gets the money. Thus I will never be able to use this program for cronyism, nepotism and favoritism.
