PHILADELPHIA has a new sheriff, but Jewell Williams says that Mayor Nutter 's bean counters are too stingy to let people know it or to allow him to cruise the city's streets in comfort. Williams, sworn in as sheriff last month after serving in the state House since 2000, said that the city had refused to buy him a new $38,000 Chevy Tahoe SUV with a souped-up law-enforcement engine, known as a pursuit vehicle. Instead, he is stuck with a 2012 Ford Escape SUV that had been used by acting Sheriff Barbara Deeley , who is retiring today.
