To the editor:

Steve Hoffman is the right person for the job, for all the right reasons. I have never made a political endorsement before but was moved to action when I learned Steve is a candidate for Jasper County Sheriff.

I met Steve while we were assigned to the Mid-Iowa Drug Task Force. Steve Hoffman is a remarkable individual, intelligent, committed, highly motivated and the kind of person who establishes professional attitude with everyone he makes contact with.

Decisions of who should be sheriff should not be taken lightly, I am confident as you examine Steve Hoffman’s character, qualifications and abilities, you will also agree he is the kind of person who will make remarkable contributions to the citizens of Jasper County.
