To the editor:
I am writing this letter in support of James Stubbs for sheriff. I have known Chief Deputy Stubbs for sometime. I believe the experience and qualities he has gained over the years are of great importance to the citizens of Webster County. Jim has held the position of chief deputy twice in his 24-plus years with the sheriff's office. This has been under two different sheriffs. I believe this says a lot about Jim's abilities and his commitment to the citizens of Webster County.
Jim has a great knowledge of the budget, always keeping in mind the taxpayers. In conversation with Jim, it is apparent that he has a great amount of pride in the sheriff's office and his family. Jim wants to continue to improve the services the sheriff's office provides while maintaining a reasonable budget. Jim implemented the room-and-board fee for sentenced county inmates to recoup some of the expense incurred by the county. Jim is always looking for ways to reduce the liability risk to the county to help lower insurance costs.
Join me in electing James Stubbs, the most qualified candidate for sheriff.
