Vote Simonton for Lee sheriff

I am writing in support of John Simonton for sheriff of Lee County. I have been involved in campaigns in the past alongside my husband, and being involved with John Simonton’s campaign has allowed me to observe John on a different level.

I’ve watched how John treats people with respect and with an open mind. I’ve observed how he responds under pressure. And I’ve watched the interaction he has with his supporters and colleagues.

He is a man of integrity and strength; commitment and fortitude.

I believe in our political system, which allows us to choose the best candidate for the job. Voting is a privilege and a duty, and in the end, it should come down to which candidate is best qualified for the position.

After spending time with John and Carrie Simonton, it’s clear to me that John is the very best candidate for the position of Lee County sheriff. 

Simonton is fair-minded, disciplined, experienced, well-respected, and a proven leader. He is uniquely qualified to be sheriff, and I believe he will lead and serve us well as sheriff of Lee County.

Please join me in voting for John Simonton on March 18.
