To the Editor:
There have been numerous advertisements and letters to the editor regarding the upcoming Sheriff's election. Many of these ads and letters talk of "years of experience" in law enforcement. Only one candidate has actual "Sheriff" experience and that is Russ Jergens; sixteen years I believe.
Of the four candidates, only two have taken the time to call or stop by and visit, Russ Jergens and Lynn Schultes. Only one candidate has promised me he would reign in the Sheriff's budget and ways to do it. That candidate is Russ Jergens.
Sheriff Goeders, I thank you for your eight years of service. However, we are going to elect a new Sheriff November 6th. We don't need a friend in the Sheriff's Office; we need someone who can do the job for the good of the people of Palo Alto County. That person is Russ Jergens.
