We have a golden opportunity to finally elect a sheriff who is not bought and paid for by a few elite, wealthy individuals who are used to buying the candidate. We have all seen first hand the embarrassing results of this old established way of doing things.
I would not presume to tell readers who to vote for; I ask only that you do your homework before you go to the polls. The candidate does not deserve your vote simply because you know his name or because some relative knows him. We all complain about politicians, but it is our responsibility to understand who it is we are voting for.
Read what you can or go meet the candidates. Make it your business to be informed, and please vote.
Never miss a local story.
