Republican candidate for Laramie County Sheriff Greg Taylor appeared on KGAB AM radio in Cheyenne on Monday morning.

Taylor, who is challenging incumbent Danny Glick in the August 21 primary election, is currently an investigator for the Wyoming Public Defenders office. He says he has over 20 years of experience in law enforcement, including time as a police chief and with a sheriff's department in Nebraska.

He told KGAB morning host Glenn Woods that he is running because ''I just can't watch" how the agency is being run. He says that while he doesn't find fault with the employees of the sheriff's office, they are currently "beat down. They are just beat down."

Taylor says one example of what he sees as the mismanagement of the agency is that, by his count, at least 50 employees have gone through the correctional side (jail employees) over the last 5 years, a number he says shows 'something is fundamentally wrong, there."

He says that while he hasn't kept track of the number of people working in the patrol division of the sheriff's office, he suspects the numbers there are probably similar. You can see the entire interview with Greg Taylor in the above video.
