Trouble in the City Family? Police Officers Association vs. Officers for Justice re: Endorsing Paul Miyamoto over Chris Cunnie

Monday, October 31st, 2011

[UPDATE: Larry Bush of CitiReport has more on this topic. And Rachel Gordon has more on this “neck-in-neck” race]

Well, look what just turned up at the City Family Dead Letter Office - it’s a missive from San Francisco Police Officers Association President Gary Delganes to Officers for Justice President Julian Hill.

It’s all about:

Loyalty;

The endorsement of Captain Paul Miyamoto by Officers for Justice;

Betrayal against “one of our own”;

Solidarity with African American officers;

The pension of one of the highest-paid police lieutenants in the United States;

How Chris Cunnie made Julian Hill one of the highest-paid police lieutenants in the United States;

Betrayal, again; and

An invitation to the next POA meeting on November 16, 2011

Is this good?

Is this meant for public release?

I know not.

“Miyamoto Brings Unmatched Experience to Sheriff’s Race

Paul Miyamoto Announces Candidacy for Sheriff; Cites Key Endorsements and 15 Years in the Department

San Francisco, CA – Captain Paul Miyamoto announced his candidacy for San Francisco Sheriff today before supporters on the steps of City Hall. Miyamoto is the only candidate for Sheriff with experience at every level and in every division of the Sheriff’s Department.

“I’m running for Sheriff because the people of San Francisco deserve a Sheriff’s Department that is free from politics and political game playing,” said Miyamoto. “Law enforcement responsibilities should not be used as a political stepping stones or political maneuvers. I offer 15 years of law enforcement service to the people of this great city and I humbly ask for your vote because this Department needs serious leadership. We need experience not politics.”

Captain Miyamoto also has extensive management experience at the SF Sheriff’s Department, spending the past two years leading and directly implementing inmate rehabilitation programs. He was directly responsible for creating the Sheriff’s Department’s Field Training Manual, passing on crucial knowledge from his vast experiences in the field to his fellow deputies.

As Sheriff, Captain Miyamoto plans to dedicate his service to public safety by continuing to follow through and improve upon the innovative rehabilitation programs brought upon by Sheriff Michael Hennessey. He plans to ensure the effective re-integration of former inmates to make a positive and safe impact within the San Francisco community.

He stated: “In the coming months, I hope to talk with voters about keeping our neighborhoods safe in the face of dwindling resources. It will take all of us working together to promote an efficient and independent Sheriff’s Department, free from politics, with an eye towards improved professional operations.”

“I’m a Chinese and Japanese-American, but at home I eat Filipino food,” joked Miyamoto, whose wife is of Filipino descent. For Captain Miyamoto, serving the diverse population of San Francisco is steadfastly at the core of the family business. He met his wife LeeAnn in 1996 while both were serving as SF Sheriff’s deputies. His father, Phillip, served as a judge for 30 years in the State Court of Appeals. Mother Ella has been a longtime volunteer at the Coleman Advocates for Children & Youth in San Francisco. Together with his wife, Captain Miyamoto takes great pride and heart in raising their brood of 5 young children, ages 9, 7 and triplets 3 in the city of San Francisco.

Captain Miyamoto grew up in San Francisco, leaving the city only to earn his Bachelor’s degree in History from the University of California at Davis. For over a decade, he has been a regular member of the SFPD’s Lion Dance team performing at the annual SF Chinese New Year Parade. Paul was joined today by the White Crane Lion Dancers, one of the most prestigious Chinese New Year dancing companies.

Miyamoto has been endorsed by Former State Senator Quentin Kopp, Supervisor Sean Elsbernd, Former Supervisor Bevan Dufty, Former Director of the Department of Emergency Management Vicki Hennessy, Former Chief of Police Dr. Anthony Ribera, and the San Francisco Deputy Sheriffs’ Association”

Friday, June 24th, 2011

All I know about the race to become the next Sheriff of San Francisco is that the slogan “Experience, Not Politics” is aimed directly at District 5 Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi.

Otherwise, I don’t know a thing, I have nothing to offer on this topic.

Anyway, here’s the kickoff announcement for Captain Paul:
