In Support Of Chris Harvey

Saturday, March 01, 2014
Recently, I had the pleasure of reinventing myself with the help of my new friend, country music star Dierks Bentley and the crew of Good Morning America. It was a dream to sing our National Anthem again and honor those that have defended our freedom. I want to thank everyone that made that possible.

As you may know, I'm a retired deputy with the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office. I've served our community through many years with blood, sweat and tears. Through those years I've had the privilege to serve beside the brave men and women of the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office. One of those deputy's has advanced himself through the ranks and is now seeking to lead the Sheriff's Office. 

Chris Harvey is the only candidate for Sheriff that has served throughout the ranks and many divisions of the Sheriff's Office. Chris Harvey is the only candidate that has patrolled our streets, arrested criminals as well as strived to protect our schools and keep our community safe. He will minimize the overreach of government as Mr. Harvey is the only candidate that opposes traffic cameras and strongly supports the Constitution.

I'm confident Chris Harvey will be a fantastic administrator for the the Sheriff's Office. He will return the Sheriff's Office to balanced budgets, community involvement and stronger partnerships with surrounding law enforcement agencies as well as municipal governments.

I've reinvented myself. The leadership of the Sheriff's Office needs to do the same. Chris Harvey is the right leader and candidate to be Sheriff.

Please, join me and vote for Chris Harvey in the Republican Primary on May 6th or during Early Voting April 16th through May1st.
