To the editor:
I am a retired employee of the Webster County sheriff's office who is backing Jim Stubbs for sheriff.
I had the opportunity to work with both candidates and each has a great background in the field of law enforcement. My main reason for backing Mr. Stubbs is the fact he was appointed acting sheriff during a very difficult time in the department and how he conducted himself in the department really impressed me.
I believe his experience with the budget, daily office administrative duties and all it takes to run the day-to-day operation of the Sheriff's Department and the jail would make Jim the best choice for our next sheriff. I believe he would continue to make needed improvements to update the department while working with other agencies to improve the safety of Webster County.
He would lead in an open and honest way.
This is why I'm casting my ballot for Jim Stubbs for sheriff and I'm hoping you will join me.
