To the editor:

I am writing this letter in support of John Halferty for Sheriff of Jasper County.  I was a peace officer in Jasper County for more than 30 years and had the opportunity to work with John for several years.  John is one of the most dedicated officers that I had the privilege to work with.

If elected, John will run the Sheriff’s Office in the most effective and efficient way possible.  John has and will continue to serve the citizens of Jasper County in a caring and compassionate manor.

John is fiscally conservative and will spend our tax dollars wisely while providing the service that we expect. Please join me Nov. 6 in voting for John Halferty for Sheriff of Jasper County.

It's getting better than it was 10-15 years ago
