Congrats to sheriff for following through on campaign promises

Posted 6 August 2016 at 6:50 pm


I just completed reading the well done article on Sheriff Randy Bower and what the Sheriff’s Office has accomplished in his first six months in office. I just have to say that from Day 1, I felt that Sheriff Randy Bower was capable of and able to steer the Sheriff’s Office in a new and innovative direction.

So often, candidates make campaign promises and if elected, lay out goals for their time in office reflecting those promises. Rarely can an elected official say that they have accomplished many of their initial goals, however Sheriff Bower has done exactly that in just six short months.

Regardless of our cultural, ethnic, racial or political backgrounds, Sheriff Randy Bower represents all of us. It is evident that he cares deeply about our community and it is undeniable that he has already had a positive and lasting impact on both the Sheriff’s Office and the county.

In a time when being a police officer is one of the toughest jobs to have, it is comforting to know that the Sheriff, deputies and investigators have the best interests of our community at heart. I feel comfortable saying that I think I speak on behalf of the overwhelming majority of county residents when I say; Thank you Sheriff Bower and the entire Sheriff’s Office for your work.
