Vote Simonton for Lee sheriff

Published: Monday, March 3, 2014 1:15 a.m. CDT

I have been reading with interest the letters concerning the sheriff’s race in Lee County. My opinion on this issue is that everyone who lives and/or works in this county is entitled to their opinion about which candidate would best serve this county and its citizens.

We live in a complex and dangerous world and would be best served by an individual with the most experience in law enforcement. Whether we are talking about big business or the private sector, putting the best quarterback on the field is always the best choice.

John Simonton has the experience and will do us all proud.
