Add two more big names at the Broward Sheriff's Office who plan to submit resignations next week: Undersheriff Thomas Wheeler and Jim Leljedal, head of media relations, Leljedal said today.
Leljedal has been with BSO for 29 years. He said that he had gotten word back indirectly that the newly elected sheriff, Democrat Scott Israel, doesn't want him.
"I could dig in my heels and stay on as a deputy I suppose but under these circumstances it is probably best to move on," he said.
Israel beat Republican Al Lamberti in November. Israel is at FDLE's sheriff's school this week and could announce some important new hires next week.
