He responded to the passing levy on Facebook, in Medford, Oregon, on Wednesday, May 17th, 2017 (KTVL/Ariana Rakhshani).

GOLD BEACH, Ore.-- Curry County Sheriff John Ward congratulated Josephine County on the passing levy.

Curry County has also suffered a severe loss of funds to the sheriff's department.

Sheriff Ward posted on Facebook, "I wonder what would have happened if our commissioners would have worked as hard trying to pass a funding measure instead of forcing huge cuts and outsourcing county services."

He added the opportunity to get something like that passed has slipped away because there were no large measures on the May ballot.
