Retired chief deputy backs Drennan for sheriff

Posted 31 August 2015 at 12:00 am


I was just reading a letter to the editor from Orleans County Corrections Officer Caufield and was I wondering if people should now vote for Undersheriff rather than Sheriff.

Chris Bourke is a dedicated, well-seasoned veteran of law enforcement and well qualified to run for Sheriff. But he is not running for Sheriff. He is on the ticket with Randy Bower, who has no law enforcement experience of any kind.

I know Tom Drennan has many qualified prospects for Undersheriff and whomever he or she is will be a like-thinking individual who will advise wisely and not have to tell him what to do or how to do it.

Only two names on the ballot for the Sept. 10 Republican Primary: Randy Bower and Chief Deputy Tom Drennan.

I choose to support and urge others to vote for the experienced and the Republican Party’s endorsed candidate: Tom Drennan.
