Letter to the editor: Goddard qualified to serve as sheriff

To the citizens of Crow Wing County: Recently a letter writer wrote a letter of support for Troy Schreifels, Pat Pickar's choice for chief deputy of Crow Wing County, if he is elected. Although Troy is a nice guy, he is not qualified for this position and does not meet the minimum qualifications of chief deputy set by the county board. This can be found on the county website under the "Career" tab.

I am in my 30th year of law enforcement in Crow Wing County and have worked with both Scott Goddard and Pat Pickar their entire law enforcement careers. Scott Goddard is by far the only candidate that is qualified for the office of sheriff. His record is flawless and his integrity is impeccable.

Join me this fall in voting for Scott Goddard, the only candidate qualified to be your sheriff.
