Could be that the majority of his bosses (the voters) either approve of his position or don't care.


I'm leaning toward that second option. :roll:

Not that they don't care it is that the majority in Ashtabula county would vote for a tree stump if it had a "D" after it's name on the ballot.

Lake County..........6289


Let's do some quick, approximate math:

6289 X $67= $421,000

Enough for 421 bullet proof vests or 9 or 10 patrol cars every year.

To be fair, it's my understanding that the $67 fee is split between the county, and state coffers. Can't recall the percentages but maybe 50-50. Still, according to the county auditor I've known for years, efficient processing of the license applications makes it a positive revenue situation.
Quit worrying, hide your gun well, shut up, and CARRY that handgun!

Ashtabula County in general is quite gun friendly. How a sheriff like Johnson stays in office is a complete mystery. We have a grocery store that sells guns upstairs, although I think there may be some trouble there. He had opposition in 2012, but came out ahead, it really was not that close.
I renewed my license, expired by two weeks, in 15 minutes at Lake County. If your county touches Lake County, make the trip.

I just renewed my CCW in Lake County, which is adjacent to my county of Ashtabula.
In and out in about 10 minutes. No waiting. Walked out with my CCW. You must make an appointment. Absolutely the best service I have ever had. My first CCW and 1st renewal was in Ashtabula county.....to which I will NEVER go back, until a leadership change there.

We tried voting him out but Ds came out to support him. Birdman is correct, we have a lot of tree stumps in office out there. Can't remember his last name but Randy from Andover ran against him for sheriff and was all about open and concealed carry.

His name was (and still is :D ) Randy Gentry...and he got my vote.

I had a great experience with Lake County Sheriff. I went for my first time CHL in January. I live in Cuyahoga County. Cuyahoga appointments were backed up until the middle of March and Lorain was backed up until the middle of February. I got an appointment within a week at Lake County. I did not have to supply a photo like you do in Cuyahoga and Lorain. I was in there for about 20 minutes and walked out the door with my new CHL in hand, no wait period whatsoever. He told me if your record is clean with NOTHING on it it goes fast.
