Vince Dean Has Honesty And Integrity

Tuesday, June 10, 2014

I have known Vince Dean for several years, and I am honored to call the man my friend. Vince has always shown himself to be a strong voice in our church and community, and I believe that it is important to know about the character of an individual before choosing to give them your vote. 

I can say with certainty that Vince has always displayed a high level of honesty and integrity. He continues to be a leader in our church, and he will be a leader for our community in the Criminal Court clerk’s office. My vote will go to someone I can trust with our tax dollars, and I can think of no better person for the job.  

Vince Dean has my vote for Criminal Court Clerk, and I hope he has yours too.
