To the editor:
Jon Sallee is the father of three little girls and one on the way. He works two jobs to provide for his family. But he doesn’t go to work every day to just any job. He chooses to be a public servant, risking his life for the safety of his family and this community. Throughout his career, he has gone beyond the call of duty for proving his dedication to the people of Jessamine County and central Kentucky. These acts have been recognized 12 times nationally and locally. He is a man of courage, on the front lines every day, and he’s not afraid to protect the people.
I often think back to when I took the oath of the office of Jessamine County jailer in 1994 and the day I walked in the detention center as jailer. My first thought was, “There is a mother and father that loves everyone in here. I will respect that.”
