Park County Sheriff Fred Wegener has drawn the ire of taxpayers and negative media attention by opting to spend the final five months of his 20-year-tenure as sheriff on paid leave in Florida.

Wegener did not run for reelection during this past primary season, and the primary and general election winner was sheriff-elect Tom McGraw.

Shortly after McGraw was elected, Wegener said that he would resign early from his post as Sheriff and allow McGraw to step in Sept. 4, rather than serving out the remainder of his four-year term, which was originally set to expire Jan. 6, 2019.

In late August, however, Wegener changed his mind and announced he would, in fact, be serving as Sheriff until Jan. 6.

I have work for my money and shouldn't have to pay this jack-hole to sit in Florida and bass fish. Give me my tax dollars back!

I feel that the past couple of years have really opened my eyes about Wegener. This latest stunt just puts the cherry on top. How in the heck can you serve as county sheriff and draw a paycheck when you are 2000 miles away? The Long family must be spitting nails right now.

Wegener is a politician. Does more need to be said?

At least he won't go on a "Book Tour" after he is out of office.

I'm thinking he should. It would sure be nice, if someone, would talk candidly and fully about the events involving the Sheriffs office, these last few years!
