NATIONAL SHERIFF'S ASSOCIATION REMOVES SHERIFF BOB GUALTIERI FROM THEIR WEBPAGE AS SHERIFF OF THE YEAR

July 12, 2020 | Last year I wrote a story about how the National Sheriff’s Association rigged their own internal process in order to name Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri as “Sheriff of the Year”.

Two weeks ago, I sent out a Press Release detailing Sheriff Gualtieri’s massive racist policies which includes hyperlinks to numerous stories, videos and even the police report where Sheriff Bob himself ripped the hair out of a Black woman’s head during a traffic stop while trying to pull her out of her car by her hair.

PINELLAS COUNTY SHERIFF BOB "GUTLESS" GUALTIERI IS A COWARD!!

June 16, 2020 | The first Sheriff’s debate of the 2020 season is set to kick off tomorrow. All three of the Sheriff’s candidates were invited to attend and two of the three agreed to be there, but not Bob Gualtieri.

Sheriff Gualtieri told this organization that he REFUSED to take part in ANY debate that I was invited to and unless they put on a SEPARATE debate with JUST him, he would not participate. So tomorrow’s debate will feature Gualtieri debating himself for the first hour, then myself and the other candidate having an actual debate for the second hour.

In the 2016 election, Sheriff Gualtieri conspired with the Tampa Bay Times to eliminate the Sheriff’s debate from their debate program. I was given no notice, it was just removed and of course the TBT never explained why, but they endorsed Bob.

Bob Gualtieri does NOT want the people of Pinellas County to hear what I have to say. He does NOT want you to know you have a CHOICE. He does NOT want the people to hear about his massive corruption, wasteful spending, racism and civil rights violations like withholding bond from peaceful protesters.

SHERIFF GUALTIERI IS A COWARD AND TOO MUCH OF A CHICKEN TO FACE HIS POLITICAL OPPONENT! Is that the kind of Sheriff YOU want in office?

Vote James McLynas for Sheriff and FREE PINELLAS from cowardly corrupt Bob.

POLICE HARASS SHERIFF'S CANDIDATE WITH UNIQUE SIGN CAMPAIGN

August 16, 2020 | Bob Sends the Crew out to stop me from campaigning. Of course the stalking, intimidation, lies, false accusations, false charges and false threats of arrest are all part of the plan. Won’t stop me.

POWER WASHING CAMPAIGN SIGNS ON CONCRETE - RUNNING A CLEAN CAMPAIGN

July 26, 2020 | SHERIFF GUALTIERI VIOLATES FLORIDA STATUE AND FLORIDA CAMPAIGN LAW BY HAVING HIS STAFF DESTROY BOTH FREE SPEECH AND CAMPAIGN SPEECH

So, now we file multiple campaign violations against Sheriff Gualtieri. It is a violation of campaign law for a candidate to destroy the campaign actions of another candidate. It is another violation to use county resources to do so. This was on a county owned sewer easement, which Gualtieri had zero legal authority to touch.

Will Kathryn Varn of the Tampa Bay Times Tell the Truth!

July 10, 2020 | The long battle to get Kathryn Varn of the Tampa Bay Times to print the TRUTH and not embellish, twist and slant every story she writes to disparage and attack me and support our corrupt Sheriff Bob continues. I would say she and I are at war.

A war over the right of the people of Pinellas to be told the truth and told what I offer them as their Sheriff so that THEY can make an educated choice, rather than have Varn only tell voters what she personally wants them to hear. That is not reporting.

CAMPAIGN SIGN FUND DRIVE!

July 4, 2020 | It is time to start a fund drive for the yard sign campaign! Doesn’t this McLynas for Sheriff sign look GREAT out in front of Sheriff Gualtieri’s house? Anyone that lives on Sheriff Gualtieri’s street, Anwood Drive in Palm Harbor can have a sign delivered for FREE!

I am looking to post signs all across Pinellas county and that will take about $20,000. Anything you can donate would be greatly appreciated. Anybody that donates more than $50 will have a sign delivered to their house. Anybody that donates $150 will have a large sign delivered to their home or business. Any amount helps! Campaign signs cost about $5-$7 each, so you can see it takes quite a bit to spread the word.

If you want to help end cannabis enforcement, we will have a special sign for that. If you want to support ending mass incarceration, police abuse, body cams, defunding/reallocation of police resources, use of force reforms or any of the dozens of platform positions I will implement, you can help make these freedoms a reality by donating to the sign campaign!

Help me FREE PINELLAS with your sign donation at the following link!

PINELLAS COUNTY GOVERNMENT AND THE PINELLAS COUNTY SHERIFF TRYING TO STOP ME FROM WINNING ELECTION Here

August 9, 2020 | These are Pinellas County workers being paid by YOUR tax dollars to paint over POWER WASHED clean campaign messages that are nothing more than clean concrete cleaned by high pressure drinkable water. There is no paint, no sign, no NOTHING there but clean cement surrounded by the dirty cement the county has failed to keep clean. Now they have white paint on the dirty concrete.

THIS is how much of a COWARD Sheriff Gualtieri is.

SPOILER CANDIDATE

August 10, 2020 | Sheriff’s Candidate Eliseo Santana was inserted into the Sheriff’s race just three months after obtaining only 14% of the vote in March of 2020 when he ran for Clearwater City Council. He was soundly defeated when he ran for School Board too. Mr. Santana is collecting a pension from the Sheriff’s office and is just looking for another taxpayer funded paycheck to stack on top of his already generous $75,000 lifetime pension from the PCSO.

However, Santana did not just pick the Sheriff’s race to enter.

James McLynas for Pinellas County Sheriff Travels Pinellas County Clean Tagging His Campaign Art

August 3, 2020 | Clean tagging is simply washing your artwork onto dirty concrete. It is perfectly legal, much more environmentally friendly and even much nicer looking than the cheap looking plastic signs that will pile up in the dump directly after the election.

Watch to the end to see how the sheriff’s office responds to the political opponent of the current sheriff and watch some interesting interactions along the way.

THE BLACKBALLING AND CENSORING OF CANDIDATE MCLYNAS CONTINUES in 2020

July 9, 2020 | In the 2016 election, the Tampa Bay Times refused to include Candidate for Sheriff James McLynas in most of their articles. Even though legalized medical marijuana was THE largest campaign issue that election, the TBT refused to mention to the public that one of McLynas’ campaign positions was to end all marijuana enforcement. They are supposed to provide equal time to all candidates and inform the voters about who is running and what they offer, but not James McLynas. They are too afraid of him winning if the people of Pinellas find out what he is offering as their sheriff. Whenever the TBT would include McLynas, it was never without some disparaging remark or marginalizing comment.
Sheriff Gualtieri did his part to silence McLynas in the 2016 election too

THANK YOU TO ALL OF MY SUPPORTERS!

June 10, 2020 | Our ranks are growing and we will NOT be denied!

Now it is time to put a war chest together to plaster Pinellas with the message of change that there is a new KIND of Sheriff in town that works for the PEOPLE!

BREAKING NEWS: James McLynas FIRST to officially qualify for Pinellas Sheriff's race!

June 10, 2020 | In 2016, Sheriff Gualtieri tried to keep me out of the Sheriff’s race by lying, filing false charges and having me arrested. I beat his ass, got the charges all dismissed, came back and ran obtaining over 100,000 votes.

This year, he made election campaigning a “non-essential” activity, made collecting petition signatures to get on the ballot an arrestable offense and prohibited 10 or more people from gathering or going door to door.

OK FOLKS, THE HARD WORK IS DONE

June 10, 2020 | Now the REALLY hard work begins. Fighting against Gualtieri’s attempts to use his badge to keep me from qualifying was tough. Coming up with the $10,303.56 for the absurd “fee” to be on the ballot was difficult. However, the REAL hard work of teaching every single Pinellas County voter that THEY have a REAL choice for Sheriff is now the task at hand.
