Vernon Betts on Bloomberg and comes up short Earlier this week, Sheriff Vernon Betts publicly announced his support for then Presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg. Since his announcement of that endorsement which was promoted on the Bloomberg campaign social media, the former New York Mayor and billionaire, Mike Bloomberg has dropped out of the race for President. Bloomberg has had to answer a lot of questions from communities of color over recent weeks who have suffered under policies he promoted as Mayor like stop and frisk.
Says Mr. Montgomery, "It's disappointing to see that the Sheriff is not only out of touch with the people that he represents in the City of St. Louis, but he's also out of step with the base of the Democratic party. But to each his own, bless his heart."
