Vote Sheriff Brown


Sheriff Bill Brown has my vote!

Sheriff Brown is the outstanding candidate and should be reelected. He has integrity, is very intelligent, and has worked extremely hard for our county. His opponent, Sandra Brown, simply does not have the comparable education, experience, or skills. For example, Bill Brown has a master’s degree and is a graduate of the FBI national academy. He has experience leading over 800 staff. Prior to being elected sheriff, he was a police chief. Sandra Brown has a high school diploma and went to paramedic school. She has only half of the years of experience in law enforcement that our sheriff has. Bill Brown speaks as an experienced, visionary leader, and Sandra Brown speaks as an armchair critic.

Sheriff Brown is highly respected because he is doing a superb job. Yet, Sandra Brown criticizes her boss and runs a very negative campaign. Furthermore, her criticisms don’t make much sense. For example, she harshly criticized the sheriff for focusing on funding of the new North County jail. I am very impressed and thankful that Sheriff Brown has worked so diligently to secure funding for the new jail — I don’t want violent criminals released in our community because there is nowhere to house them. Jail overcrowding is a real problem that Sheriff Brown has wisely sought to correct for the safety of our neighborhoods. Sheriff Bill Brown is clearly the outstanding candidate and has my vote!
