It’s hard to imagine two more different sheriffs than Nye County’s Tony DeMeo and Maricopa County, Ariz., law boss Joe Arpaio.
Outside Pahrump, you probably haven’t heard much about DeMeo. But he made headlines last week by calling out Nye County Tax Assessor Shirley Matson for her racially charged comments about Latino construction workers.
She wrote in an email, “My staff, me, taxpayers coming to our offices, other town and county employees can plainly see that the construction workers are all Mexican/Latino, non-English speaking and I’m getting complaints.”
