On Sunday, the day after Eric Noble’s razor thin loss to Sheriff Chapman at the Republican Convention, the Democratic candidate for sheriff, Brian Allman, offered Noble a job. In an email Allman said if he was elected he would hire Eric Noble for the job of chief deputy with the rank of lieutenant colonel.[read_more]
“As the Democratic nominee for the office of sheriff of Loudoun County, I make the bold statement today that I will set aside political differences and do what is best for the Loudoun County sheriff’s department and this county,
Eric has so many great ideas on how to run the department and new policies to improve the law enforcement experience here in Loudoun County,”
However, Allman had not checked with Eric Noble, or anyone on his campaign, before issuing his statement. When Noble learned about Allman’s plans he responded,
“(the) statement was made without my knowledge or consent. Moreover, the statement implies that I am endorsing or otherwise supporting a candidate other than the Republican nominee. Nothing could be further from the truth.”
Noble said he had not been contacted by Allman,
Had he done so,” Noble wrote, “he would have been told unequivocally that I will not serve in any capacity in his administration should he be elected, nor will I, under any circumstances, support any candidate running against a Republican nominee for public office.”
I would expect nothing less from Eric Noble.
