The signs are up; election season is upon us again. Long before we show up to vote or mail in our ballots, opinions are being formed and candidates are selected. With this in mind, I appreciate you taking a few moments to read my thoughts concerning Heath Speckman running for sheriff of Lake County.
I have had the privilege of knowing Heath for over six years. We have biked many miles together, hunted elk and deer together, and worshipped and served in the same church together. Heath and I have remained close friends through the many ups and downs life often provides. It is through my experience knowing Heath that I can confidently recommend him for sheriff. Heath is a person of utmost integrity. When he commits to something, he will do everything in his power to make sure it is done well. He is honest and law-abiding. I have never seen Heath stretch, bend or exaggerate the truth in any way. Just as a side note, this can be a little frustrating when we are driving and he will not go even a few miles above the speed limit. Heath is extremely hard-working; whether he’s training for Leadman or gaining proficiency in his career, Heath will work hard to do the best he possibly can. As the sheriff of Lake County, I am confident that Heath can and will develop a qualified team and form the sheriff’s department Lake County needs and deserves.
