Support for Michael Geriets for sheriff

To the editor:

The primary election is March 18, 2014, and one of the candidates for Logan County sheriff is Michael Geriets.

I have known Michael Geriets for over 24 years and worked with him for almost 20 years.

I have worked with Michael in numerous types of situations, and he always handles himself in a very professional manner. He has always been willing to help out his fellow officers and the public in any way he could.

Michael has strived to increase his knowledge of the ever-changing laws that affect the citizens of Logan County.

As an administrator, Michael works to balance the needs of the public, the department and the employees in order to efficiently provide the best possible service to the public.

[to top of second column in this letter]

Both candidates have put their thoughts, ideas and experience out for the voters to see. They both participated in the debate on March 4.

Michael's slogan during this campaign is "Change is good." I am not going to say all change is good or that change is always needed. However, in this election, I agree with Michael that change is good and change is needed.

I hope you will join me in voting for Michael Geriets for sheriff on March 18.

Tim Kerns
