Endorsement interviews: Paul Miyamoto


Paul Miyamoto is a captain in the Sheriff's Office and is running for the top job. He told us that at a time when significant change is coming -- from the retirement of longtime Sheriff Mike Hennessey to state realignment on prison policy -- it's important to have "someone from within, someone who's been doing the job." He vowed (as did all the candidates) to continue Hennessey's progressive policies, but was a little fuzzy in some areas. He said, for example, that he's against privatizing jail health services -- but would be willing to examine the issue if there were a viable alternative. Audio and video after the jump.
