Dear Editor,

I am writing this letter to you in reference to the race for the Brown County Sheriff. I have lived in Brown County now for 28 years and have had several different types of involvement with the Brown County Sheriff, not just current but also past Sheriffs.

I am writing to give my opinion of who I feel would make the best candidate. Please understand that I am not someone who votes by party, or just supports any person who is running. The person I am in support of for the upcoming sheriff’s election is candidate David Benjamin. As I stated previously, I have had several types of experiences with our county law enforcement office and I do not just vote to be voting. I want to let the voters know why I am supporting Mr. Benjamin for Sheriff. I had not known Mr. Benjamin prior to September 2015. I approached him at the Antique machinery show and proceeded to ask him several questions. These were not just easy questions; these were some hardcore down to business questions ranging from all the different facets that I had previously experienced with our County Sheriff’s department in my past. Please know that I have had some major dealings and some not so major dealings both good and bad with this department, I did not speak of those dealings in any shape or form with Mr. Benjamin prior to asking the questions, so he had no idea what I “wanted to hear”.

He was with his family enjoying the day at the show and stood there for over an hour talking to me and answering questions. He never once acted stand offish or like I was putting him out. He is a Christian man who believes in the Bible and its teachings. You may say, “What does being a Christian have to do with this?” I say it has a lot to do with it! If you are a born again Christian and a follower of Christ, then you should know that the Bible wants us to lead the world in his ways. Mr. Benjamin has a plan for this county and has the people of this county in his best interest and is willing to Serve and Protect to put this county back on the map as a safe and reliable county rather than a laughing stock. We need to know that we have a Sheriff who is going to work and respond, not just put on a uniform when the time is right for him.

I want to thank you for your time and ask the voters of Brown County to stop David, ask him the questions, see what he is made of, don’t vote by party or just because this person is currently serving, vote for what Brown County needs and that is David Benjamin for Sheriff.

Sincerely,

Shannon VanWinkle
