The common perception around the LCRC is that Ron Speakman is full of shit. Seriously – the guy is wacked. He’s been sending out daily emails lately full of BS. I don’t have time to dissect all of them right now, but believe me, we do not need a guy who was basically forced to resign from Leesburg PD and then went into the mortgage business for almost twenty years as Sheriff of a growing important county.
While many LCSO employees are ready for a change, the feeling there now is that they would rather stick with the devil they know in Simpson (who is never really there anyway) than deal with Speakman as their boss. Please don’t buy what this snake oil salesman is selling. I’ve got some more stuff coming soon on this guy. He is so unfit to be Sheriff of any backwater jurisdiction, let alone Loudoun County.
