Letter to the editor: Wygmans is the ‘obvious choice’
To the Addison County voters,
I would like to comment on the race for state’s attorney. As a member of law enforcement in Addison County, I believe Dennis Wygmans to be the obvious choice. While working at the Addison County State’s Attorney Dennis has not only elevated the level of law enforcement in Addison County, but also improved the quality of my own investigations and police work. He accomplished this elevation through increased attention to detail and higher expectations of the law enforcement community. This accomplishment is clear through Dennis’s incredible conviction rates.
Of note, his domestic assault conviction rate was 70 percent. Compare this with 48 percent statewide.
Also, as quoted by Dennis, his “sex assault rate was 100 percent for lower level felonies.” One of Dennis’s defining qualities is his accessibility for law enforcement. Regardless of the time of day, Dennis will answer the phone to aid and improve Addison County and its law enforcement. Through his commitment to availability and increased expectations of law enforcement, Dennis has a proven track record in Addison County.
