Sheriff's Race: Charles "Chazz" Cervantes
SAN ANTONIO - There are four Democrats running for Bexar County Sheriff in hopes of challenging Republican incumbent Susan Pamerleau in November, and Charles "Chazz" Cervantes is one of them.
Cervantes recently retired from the sheriff's office after spending 30 years in law enforcement, and he believes he's the right candidate for the job.
"I know the problems. I know the solutions," said Cervantes. "I know where they need to be directed to, and I'm a good director."
Cervantes says he's served under four sheriff's, including Susan Pamerleau.
"Staffing problem is one of the main issues along with morale," Cervantes told us. "Those are the main things that are going on in the jail right now. Once I address those two issues, I believe we'll have a better department."
The sheriff's office has double jurisdiction in Bexar County. That means they also have authority within the City of San Antonio.
Cervantes also says he plans to tackle bullying on social media. He says the laws need to be changed to better protect everyone.
