Refund my application fee

Sheriff Adam Christianson, when you ran for election in 2006 you asked for my support and I voted for you.

In 2008, after completing all requirements to obtain a concealed weapon permit, I asked for your support and you denied me.

In the April 4 Bee, I read the article "Under the gun on permits" (Page B-1) in which you said you never issue a permit to residents that live in Turlock.

Since you knew in advance you weren't going to issue me a permit, I feel you took my application fee under false pretense, so I feel you owe me a refund.



Editor's note: Christianson originally told The Bee that he doesn't approve permit requests from Turlock residents, but as today's Page A-1 story reports (click link at left), that is not the case.
