Jeffrey Gahler, a Republican who lost the race for Harford County Sheriff by less than a 3 percent margin in 2010, submitted a letter to local media criticizing Sheriff Jesse Bane's management of the Harford County Detention Center.
Gahler contends Bane has shown poor leadership by not bringing on a new warden and is ultimately responsible for a number of inmate deaths at the jail.
In June Gahler officially announced his intent to run for sheriff in 2014. He has submitted a series of letters to local media on the subject of the sheriff's office.
