Fairfax GOP seeks to pin badge of dishonor on Barry
“Customarily with an incumbent, it’s all about that person’s record and whether they manage expectations,” he said. “I don’t blame [Republicans] for bringing up the issue at all. I just don’t see how it overrides all other voter considerations.”
“Whether I’m elected or not, the taxpayers are not out one penny,” he said.
In talking with people in the county, Sheriff Barry said, the most common reaction thus far has been confusion.
“I certainly hope that at some point, someone will call Cooper out on these laws,” he said. “I am not stealing county money. I have not found a loophole in the retirement system. It’s very frustrating for them to get away with things that are completely fabricated and repeated. Unfortunately, it has yet to happen, but hopefully, it will.”
