    I find it interesting that they were promoted right AFTER the election.Obviously, Caroline is growing but, were these political promotions for these two men supporting lippa in the election.Lt. Col. Hall told me himself that he was supporting “one horse” in the race and that was lippa.Ofcourse, political promotions are wrong and should not be tolerated by the citizens.Will these promotions mean more money for these two?Personally, I don’t want one red cent going to people who were promoted for political reasons.If however, if this is just a coincidence then congratulations to both men.

  2. Uh…so Lippa should have hired Homer Johnson to be Lt. Col. and Jack Braxton to be Major?

  3. mr. william e. sparks says:

    No,

    Both candidates had their shot.But, why not ask lippa why he promoted these two right after the election?Johnson is finished.Braxton is also done because of his poor showing in the election.

  4. Would it have made a difference if they were promoted before the election?

    Do you have any reason that they shouldn’t have been promoted at all?

  5. mr. william e. sparks says:

    Politically, I think it would made a difference if lippa could have distanced the promotions from the election and given a bigger reason then just “they deserve to be promoted”.Second, I can’t support their promotions if all lippa can say is that he thinks they deserve it and it’s right after an election.Give me a break…lol

    sorry about the typo.

    Why does it make a difference that they were promoted. If you do some research, you will see that Caroline County is the 3rd fastest grwing county in the United States. The department size has increased dramatically since Sheriff Lippa took office and the crime rate has gone way down. Maybe, he is just preparing for the inevitable. Caroline is going to need more deputies and supervisors. Not only did Capt. Moser and Major Hall get promoted, he also promoted up a Sgt to Lieutenant and promoted two deputies to Sgt. These promotions had nothing to do with who they were backing for the election, it was based on merit and the things they have done to make the Caroline County Sheriffs Office a respected agency.

    Why must the lippa lovers in this county always attack people who say something about him?P Man “If you would do some research”.The article about lippa mentions Moser and Hall not the other promotions.But, great if lippa is promoting others then thats fine but, why not mention the other promotions in the article?Also, why the political picture of lippa,hall and moser standing in front of the great seal of the commonwealth and the news about lippa promoting his mini me and moser?Sounds like the all knowing lippa needs to brush up on his public announcements to keep guys like me from slamming him.

  9. You know, if Hall had decided to stay at the Virginia State Police, he could be making double what’s he making right now Sparks.

    Meanwhile, Moser has been with the Sheriff’s Office for more than 20 years. That’s with three different Sheriffs right there, so does that still make this a “political promotion”?
