I wrote a letter to the editor of my local paper concerning the run-off election for Sheriff of Liberty County. Here is the letterâ€¦http://www.coastalcourier.com/news/article/25837/
Lets elect sheriff with experience
I am writing because I find it strange how people reacted after the death of Sheriff Don Martin when his wife Polly was appointed to finish his term until the special election. A common complaint I heard was that she had no experience. Fast-forward several months later to the election and look at the hypocrisy. The front-runner in this race, Steve Sikes, is no doubt a good man with decent values, but many of the same people who I heard complaining about Polly Martinâ€™s appointment are now supporting Sikes who, like Polly, has no firsthand experience in law enforcement.
In Warren Waye, I see a candidate who has many years and various levels of first-hand law enforcement experience. I have never met Mr. Waye, nor have I campaigned for him, but I have supported him and will continue to support him for sheriff because of his experience and the need for change.
