Letter about Miner for Sheriff...


Mon, Oct 20th, 2014
Posted in Preston Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

The time to elect our next county sheriff is fast approaching. I hope that people will take a good hard look at voting for Brian Miner to fill that position. For over 20 years, Brian has served the people of this county with fairness, dignity and distinction. He has quietly served without thoughts of anything other than doing his duty to the very best of his ability. He isn’t the most vocal or the most visual candidate running, and you probably won’t find him in the spotlight because that isn’t where the work is. He is behind the scenes doing what needs to be done. He is doing that job without thoughts of awards, spotlight or even a pat on the back. He does it because it is his job and he takes that job seriously. He has earned my respect and that of the majority of people who know him and have worked with him. For the past 20 plus years, he has given his dedication to this county and the people who live here. He and his family have lived here, been among us, and he knows our unique issues. He has taken some flack for his answer in the paper about allowing certain qualified people to protect the school with firearms if need be. Just think about his answer, he TRUSTS the people of the school district and the people of this county, to make choices for themselves. He only suggests that a higher level of training be required. That kind of common sense is needed. We don’t need one more politician we need a sheriff.
