I would like to express my support for Larry A. Owens, the Democratic candidate for sheriff of Elkhart County.
I believe Larry will provide leadership in a positive way. In a time when budgets are tight, many public safety departments are examining the way they conduct business and sometimes cut services without a lot of thought about their constituents. I believe Larry will explore new and cost-effective ways to save money for citizens of our county. One of these ideas would be to more fully utilize the resources of the Center for Community Justice.
Larry will bring discipline to the Sheriff’s Department as evidenced by his four years of exemplary service with the United States Marine Corps, as well as his knowledge of management as seen through his numerous arbitration cases (of which he won 90 percent). He has worked hard to create win-win situations for both management and unions.
I urge you to vote for Larry Owens this coming Tuesday and again Nov 2. He will be a great sheriff.
