Sorry for the late post, I actually slept in ??. I wanted to personally thank each and every person who helped and supported us. By us, I mean the folks that stood for doing the right thing.
Again, thanks to all of you!
KOB's Chris Ramirez caught up with Gonzales shortly after he was predicted to take the race to talk about some of the issues he faced during this election. One, in particular, having to do with some backlash he has faced in not having his deputies wear body cameras.
"I'm always open to the technology portion of law enforcement the most open-minded head of agency and make rational decisions," said Gonzales.
