Retain Varga as Lee sheriff

Published: Friday, March 14, 2014 1:15 a.m. CDT

The position of sheriff is of the utmost importance to all of us who live in Lee County. 

A good leader is a dedicated individual who makes judgments and decisions that are best for the people.

Being a good leader may bring rewards, but it is far more about servitude and duty than it is about status and reward. I have always been a strong believer and supporter of individuals who are involved in law enforcement.

I also have great respect for these individuals, such as Sheriff Varga, who, on a daily basis, put their lives on the line for us so that we can continue to feel safe and protected while we are in our homes and during our travels. 

The way I see things regarding the upcoming election is to have Sheriff Varga continue on with his path of success and achievement. You surely do have my vote, Mr. Varga.
