LETTER: Supports sheriff

Your safety and $160 million of your tax dollars is riding on next month’s sheriff’s election.

What do you know about current Sheriff Steve Strachan?

We don’t hear about Steve Strachan because he prefers working for public safety to campaigning. He doesn’t seek out the media, so you may not know that he saved us enough money to hire 15 new deputies.

He spends his free time being president of the Kent Rotary Club, a board member for Kent Youth and Family Services and is a member of the International Association of Chiefs of Police.

His involvement tells me he is working to fight crime and to prevent it. He puts his mind, muscle and heart into King County.

Sheriff Strachan has encouraged a stronger work ethic among King County law enforcement and instilled new pride in the department.

He will not accept campaign donations from employees of the Sheriff’s Department. How many candidates for anything turn down money on principle?

I want a law enforcement leader who proves his skills through actions, not words. Not many offices affect our daily lives as much as sheriff, and Steve Strachan has proven he knows how to serve and protect.
