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
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.
March 12, 2014]
