Support for Michael Geriets for sheriff

To the editor:

I want to go on record as endorsing Mike Geriets for Logan County sheriff.

Mike has been a valuable member of the Lincoln Police Department for nearly 25 years, most of those years as a supervisor and administrator.

Mike is also a dedicated father to his four children. I have seen his dedication firsthand as I am the stepfather to his two youngest, Jackson and Tori.

I have known and worked with Mike for over 16 years, and I am confident in his ability to successfully run the Logan County Sheriff's Department. Mike has the passion and experience that will make him a sheriff Logan County can be proud of.

There is a serious need for change in the sheriff's department. For the last 12 years, the working relationship between the sheriff's department and other police agencies in Logan County has been nonexistent, and to me, this is unacceptable. Sheriff Nichols has gone on record stating, "Unfortunately personalities sometimes enter into the equation with other agencies in the county." I want a sheriff who has the capabilities to work and communicate with all other agencies in the county without personality conflicts coming into play.

Mike Geriets already has a good working relationship with these agencies and should be our next Logan County sheriff.

Michael Fruge, co-worker
