The candidates at the forum, which was sponsored by the Grant County-Silver City TEA Party, were Grant County Sheriff Raul Villanueva, Mike Jimenez, James Koons, Art Vega, Chris Ponce and Wayne Olver, the sole Republican candidate running for the post.
Olver, who has more than 22 years of law enforcement experience in in New Jersey, said his experience included being a dog catcher, which "gave me a unique insight" in dealing with members of the public.
Olver currently is a reserve deputy for the Grant County Sheriff's Department.
Koonts pointed out that he is the only candidate who hasn't worked as a Grant County Sheriff's Department officer and said as an outsider he had the best opportunity to bring change to the office.

Wayne Olver
SILVER CITY - Wayne Olver announced he will run for sheriff of Grant County, running on the Republican ticket.
Olver, 55, served for 22 1/2 years as a police officer in New Jersey, 2 1/2 years as detective and five years part-time as special police officer.
Olver retired from law enforcement in New Jersey in 2005 and has been a resident of Grant County since then and serves as a reserve deputy for the Sheriffs Office.
He has an associates degree in Criminal Justice from Morris County College in Randolph, N.J.
He was a member of a number of volunteer groups in New Jersey. He served as a delegate in the New Jersey State Policemen's Benevolent Association for 15 years and retired as the third vice president on the board. He was president of his local upon retirement. Since moving to Grant County he has become a volunteer with Habitat for Humanity, and volunteers at the organization's ReStore.
Olver listed his career as a police officer as his qualification for the sheriff's seat, and said he wants to make a difference in Grant County.
He said focusing on the problems of drugs and gangs in the community would be among his priorities, if elected, and he would also like to do something about the growing transient problem.
"I see them as a growing and continuing problem," he said. "Along with drugs and all related problems such as gangs, burglaries, drive-bys, thefts, and more."
He said he would also like to see more interaction between the Sheriff's Office, the community and the children.
Transients and drugs and drug-related crimes are some of the current challenges the new sheriff will face, Olver said.
Olver was married for 30 years and is a widower with no children. He is also a licensed private detective, a former business owner and a life-long Republican.
