Letter to the editor: Gibbs earns support for sheriff
I am pleased to support Kevin Gibbs in his quest to become sheriff of Addison County. Kevin was the chief of police in Bristol during much of my tenure as principal at Bristol Elementary.
Several years ago Chief Gibbs received formal training in the rudiments of strategic planning. Along with the assistance of a team of Bristol citizens he developed a strategic plan to address the needs of the Bristol Police Department. The ultimate goal was to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the police department. This team, with guidance from Gibbs, developed a draft document that articulated goals, objectives and an action plan to be accomplished over a multiyear period. This document provided the framework for dialog with the elected Bristol officials. Such a planning tool could serve Kevin well as sheriff of Addison County.
I will be supporting Kevin Gibbs as county sheriff as I see him as a person of integrity and honesty. I urge you to consider doing the same.
