Letter to the editor: Bristol police chief endorses Stacey for sheriff

I have had the pleasure, honor and privilege to work with Mark Stacey at the Addison County Sheriff’s Department.

He was the first to offer assistance and guidance when I was hired. He was always willing to help his fellow deputies complete details. He was committed to learning and sharing with others current acceptable law enforcement procedures, prioritizing a de-escalation approach to calls for service. With his guidance, we improved our service to the communities we served. He displayed compassion and empathy with everyone he encountered.

Although we work at different law enforcement agencies now, he continues to provide guidance and assistance to myself and others.

Mark holds the position of Addison County Traffic Safety Coordinator, through the Vergennes Police Department. In this position he has coordinated Governor’s Highway Safety Grant patrols with the law enforcement agencies in Addison County. His leadership has improved communication between agencies, increasing the number of interdepartmental patrols. 

Mark has been serving in law enforcement for over 20 years. He previously served as a selectboard member for the town of Leicester and was manager of a local car dealership.

His experience and leadership more than qualify him for the position of Addison County sheriff.

For a new vision and direction at the Addison County Sheriff’s Department, please join me in electing Mark Stacey as your next Addison County sheriff.
