Letter to the Editor: Goddard is logical choice for sheriff

As the former chief of police for the Crosslake Police Department, I write to urge the citizens of Crow Wing County to vote for Capt. Scott Goddard for the next sheriff.

As the former chief of police for the Crosslake Police Department, I write to urge the citizens of Crow Wing County to vote for Capt. Scott Goddard for the next sheriff.

During my 23 years serving the city of Crosslake, I came to know Capt. Goddard well and had many opportunities to observe his leadership and management skills.

There is no question in this race; Capt. Goddard is the only logical choice. He has been an innovator in the county by bringing the ALICE program to businesses and schools to help reduce the real risk of violence. He also brought the VITALS app to the sheriff's office, ensuring all deputies are outfitted with this tool.

Further, he worked with me as chief of police and with other chiefs in the county on the START program, which takes a proactive stance in dealing with mental health threats.
