Letter: Vote for Brett Schroetlin for Grand County sheriff

To the Editor:

As we near the end of this long election process, I would like to urge all of you who have not yet made their decision in the race for Grand County sheriff — our only contested race — to cast you vote for Officer Brett Schroetlin.

In case you didn’t know, Officer Schroetlin went all the way through the whole political process — starting with the GOP County Assembly, garnering the ballot’s top line and going on to unseat a multiple-term incumbent sheriff in the primary. It was evidently obvious the voters wanted to see a change.

Now, we’re facing a write-in candidate who happens to be the department’s current undersheriff. Then, to add insult to injury, this candidate announced his running mate, who happens to be the outgoing sheriff — the more things change, the more they remain the same. And to boot, the undersheriff happens to be married to the assistant district attorney — something, in my opinion, that makes for a real conflict of interest.

Mr. Schroetlin ran his campaign on three tenets: honesty, integrity and transparency and promises to run Grand County’s Sheriff’s Department in the same manner.

I urge you to vote for this honest, hardworking man. He will make a difference in the direction of law enforcement here in Grand County.

Charles LaBrake
