MIDLAND, TEXAS (Big 2/ Fox 24)- Midland County Sheriff Candidate Joe Lozano says something isn’t right in the department and if elected he wants to get to the bottom of it.
“Clean up the swamp that’s what it is it’s a big filthy swamp. Bring in DPS Troopers bring in Texas Rangers these are the only people that can clean it because they know how to clean it they do this a lot because there is a lot of dirty Sheriff’s Departments. The bad thing about it is 30 years, over 30 years, they never corrected it,” he says.
When asked if his different background would help or hinder his ability to be the Sheriff he says being a businessman is what makes him the person for the job.
“Run that Sheriff’s Department like a business not like everybody is there now don’t know what their doing, don’t know what their job is, oh I’m gonna make sure they know what their job is. I’m going to be firing a lot of people. I’m not going to put up with this bad stuff.”
Lozano says Midland is important to him and he hopes voters look into all candidates before casting their vote.
“I raised my kids here, raised my grandkids here. I took it up and said it’s time for a change.”
