Who is Sheriff Greg Tony?

Let's talk about a man named Gregory Tony, a former small-town cop who was appointed sheriff of Broward County in 2019 by Republican Governor Ron DeSantis. There was a minimal background check and only a brief interview conducted before Tony was chosen for one of the most important and powerful positions in south Florida.

In May DeSantis distanced himself from Sheriff Tony, likely after realizing he made a terrible decision. This quote says it all:

"It's not like he's my sheriff. I don't even know the guy.
It's not like he was a political ally of mine."


The citizens of Broward County deserve better.
