To the editor:
I have worked relentless hours during this election because as a sheriff’s deputy, I know first hand the changes that need to happen at the jail and I believe in my vision for the Jessamine County Detention Center.
During this campaign, I have faced criticism from my opponent; although most accusations are not worth a response, I would like to address one issue that was mentioned several times: “lack of administrative experience.”
This is a crucial point because it is the core difference between us as candidates and will be the difference in us as jailer.
First, let me assure voters that I do have the necessary administrative experience. As a lieutenant with the Jessamine County Fire District, I supervise shifts, I handle scheduling, I have participated in grant writing, and I have implemented training programs and policies.
