Editor, the Advocate:
With the primary election at hand, we have a choice of qualified professional peace officers for the office of Sheriff of Victoria County. I appreciate Sheriff O'Connor for his dedication and many changes he has made to improve what he started with, but he has an opponent that is packing some heavy credentials.
Scott Hornstein has the character and extensive qualifications to take the sheriff's department to the next level in meeting challenges of law enforcement and crime prevention. Hornstein is highly trained and skilled as a peace officer. He has worked as a member of law enforcement for over 20 years. He is cool, calm, and collected, and can bring strong leadership abilities, tied with a common-sense approach in performing the duties of Sheriff that will yield positive results. He has the experience and energy to combat the drug trafficking, within, and what passes through our community, as well as managing the business of law enforcement.
Please exercise your right to vote, and vote to keep our community and our nation strong.
