Paul Babeu's Chief Deputy Steve Henry Considering a Run For Boss' Job -- Now That Babeu's Considering Running For Congress

henrypcso.jpg
PCSO Chief Deputy Steve Henry, it appears, is the heir-apparent to Sheriff Paul Babeu, who's probably running for Congress.
Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu announced last week that he's considering running for Congress -- his chief deputy, Steve Henry, however, apparently thinks Babeu is definitely running for Congress, and is now considering running for his boss' job, the Pinal County Sheriff's Office confirms to New Times.

PCSO spokesman Elias Johnson says Henry has formed an exploratory committee for a potential run for sheriff -- which seems a bit premature considering Babeu is only considering a run for Congress (so he says -- it's been rumored for months that Babeu planned to seek higher office).

The Congressional seat Babeu's got his eye on doesn't even exist yet -- it's what would be Arizona's Fourth Congressional District, as it's been proposed by the Congressional Redistricting Committee.

The proposed district includes parts of six current districts and covers the northern part of Pinal County, stretching into western Arizona.

Congressman David Schweikert currently lives in what would be District Four, but has said he plans to run for a different seat that includes Scottsdale and Paradise Valley.

Prior to his gig with the PCSO, Henry was an officer with the Chandler Police Department, which is the same cop-shop where Babeu served as the head of the police union.

Henry's resume (compliments of Southwest Border Sheriffs) is as follows:

Chief Henry served as Traffic Section Commander for the Chandler Police Department. He has served as acting Patrol Watch and District Commander. As a Sergeant, Henry served in Bicycle Patrol, Neighborhood Services, Patrol and in SAU/SWAT in charge of deployment and tactical decisions in high risk Police incidents. Henry has also served as an Internal Affairs Investigator and Special Enforcement Detective. Henry earned his Bachelors degree in History at Arizona State University and received his Masters of Education from Northern Arizona University. Henry served active duty with the US Air Force and US Army, where he later became a commissioned Army Officer. He has numerous awards and unit citations, including the Police Medal of Honor.

Henry already has the endorsement of the Southwest Border Sheriffs -- despite not yet having announced his potential candidacy. We expect a tip of Babeu's political cap to follow.

Johnson says an announcement will be made about Henry's potential candidacy tomorrow morning. Stay tuned...

Henry, you are a loser that just blogs for Paul all day long, and hides behind a screen name and gets paid for kissing his ass. You are a mean s o b that get away with poaching who you want. Why don't you stick with poaching Paul You will get in less trouble, and he likes it. Remember, Paul says the Buck stop with him. Now listen to him. Love, Lucy Babeu

The changes this idiot made to P.C.S.O were completely counter productive! One must remember he has been running things since his boss is basically never at Florence because he's on the road kissing McCain's ass, or anybody else that could help his career!

Ask any Deputy about the change in call signs which is still confusing everyone to this day!

Unless you live in Gold canyon or Queen Creek { where all the votes are] your voice will not be heard by the Hierarchy in Florence! To sum up Babeu and his "New Boy Network'

If you wish to be a success in the world, promise everything, deliver nothing.                                                    Napoleon Bonaparte

Ask anyone in the Volunteer area of the S.O and you will find that Paul has promised the world and reneged on all!

As soon as he got elected he put every one on "the pay no mind list"He is guilty of the same indiscretions that he accused the former Sheriff of,umm, change where have we heard that before??? look into this man's background and you will discover a lot of things he wishes to hide.

This is exactly the type of "Career" politician we need to keep out of office, look into this man before you consider voting for him for any post, including that of dog catcher, oh, sorry that's already been taken hasn't it?

I understand you are wanting to get rid of him. But he ran out of MA to get away from all his dirty secrets, lies, and his financial obligations. The same with his brother Shaun. I am gald by everyone comments here, you realiize he is nothing but a fake  and media whore, that needs to be gone. Maybe he will go to Mexico. Now he is contacting everyone in North Adams and trying to make amends to fix his problems that he had. He is even using my father to call people. Paul is such a sneak, He can do all the calling he wants, it won;t work. The mayor in North Adams can get rid of certain things for you like he did his wife.but certain things Paul just don't go away. I am still here and your lies about me are going to haunt you. Your favorite sister, Lucy Babeu

Heywood,Nice to meet you. Paul and Shaun are such big babies, they were living free in my parents house in North Adams. Then when they moved to AZ my father had to pay the two little babies way out to AZ by renting a U-Haul. When they got to AZ they lived for freewith my parents until my father had their house built and paid for them.And these are suppose to be men in their 30's. I call them two big freeloaders. My father then bought them brand new cars and I could go on and on. They are two big babies. Paul and Shaun act like they earned their money themselves. And as far as Steve Henry, he just a big kiss ass that just does whatever Paul sucks, I mean says. Have a nice day. Lucy Babeu

Chuck, I love the post. Henry will just lie like Paul and say I was not charged even though he did it. I  follow your post and you are right on target with everything with Paul and the idiot Henry. Have a nice day and keep up the great blogging. Lucy Babeu

If Babboo annouces within a year of the election he doesn't have to resign, and he can appoint Henry to Sheriff so he can run as an incumbent if he wins.

Who in their right mind would vote for Babboo for anything?
