I could be wrong, but if Bernadas is elected sheriff it will be the first
time in St. Bernard parish history that we elect someone sheriff that
actually has law enforcement experience and background. Stephens was the
CAO of the parish when he was elected, and prior to that the Rowleys and Dr.
Trist did not come from a police or legal background.

In the very least this is going to get very interesting.

Yes, and according to his list of qualification (that were listed in a
previous post) Bernadas is more than qualified to be sheriff of St. Bernard.

As I said in a previous post, I can recall that he was always working in
the field, at a crime scene, training others on homeland security, teaching
others to shoot and handle guns, gathering evidence in high profile murders,

and making statements to the press. He may have been in an office "pushing
pencils" at times, but he is very on hands and qualified in law enforcement.

I think his experience in real estate is also a plus. A person has to be
organized and good with money to be able to be successful in real estate
while holding a full time job and raising a family that large. The
shreriff's office also has a budget and needs to be able to spend it's money

correctly, fine money for various projects and use it's money wisely and
