Tom Bergin is completing his second term as sheriff, and not one of his opponents has called attention to anything he has done wrong. So why start over?
The jail issue has been a source of conversation for both of his terms, and will be decided by voters. It is not the current sheriffs issue, other than he keenly knows the needs of the crowded facility.
After looking at Bergins website, www.sherifftombergin.com, it is clear why he should be re-elected, as he is the only candidate who has the managerial experience and credentials to handle the job. The other candidates have experience in law enforcement, but not one has managed a force.
Sheriff Tom Bergin has not only effectively managed his large staff, but has led by example, demonstrating that defending public safety together with respect for individuals is possible. We strongly support Tom Bergin as sheriff, and urge you to vote for him on May 15.
