Letter to the editor: Elmore has proven himself
I hope you will join me in supporting Michael Elmore for Addison County sheriff in the upcoming Aug. 9 Vermont Primary election. Michael grew up in Addison County and graduated from Middlebury Union High School, followed by continuing education at Bob Jones University in Greenville, S.C., where he earned his degree in Criminal Justice.
Michael has always been focused on law enforcement as a career choice and has continued that goal by attending the Vermont Police Academy, receiving the high academic award, and has since been serving in the Addison County Sheriff’s Department for the past five years.
Recently Michael has taken on more responsibility by handling the day-to-day activities of the sheriff’s department and has been recognized for his dedication to serving the needs of the residents of Addison County and developing a cooperative relationship with the other law enforcement departments in the county. He understands the importance of Modern Community Policing objectives and how best to manage the limited resources available to provide the best services possible for Addison County residents.
If you choose a ballot in the Primary Election that does not have Michael Elmore listed as a candidate, please consider writing his name in for the office of Addison County sheriff. Thank you.
