To the Editor:
There are 2 candidates on the ballot for Sheriff this year. One of them, Robert Langley, has 23 years of hands-on policing experience in the Putnam County Sheriff's department. He's been in corrections, on patrol, in forensics, in investigation. If that's not enough, he's been a volunteer fire fighter in Mahopac and Garrison for a combined 22 years.
To say that Robert Langley is qualified for the job of Sheriff is a major understatement. He's pledged to return integrity to the Sheriff's office, and, boy, do we need that.
The other candidate on the ballot, Don Smith, is brazenly running for reelection, despite the fact that his personal vendettas have already cost taxpayers $125,000.
The top cop in the the county is a crook who costs us money. And there are more lawsuits likely to come against Smith. How much more will he cost us?
I urge independent voters and voters in all parties to look at the records of both men, and cast your votes accordingly. It shouldn't be difficult to choose Robert Langley, and for a return to integrity in the office that needs it most.
