In support of Epps

Editor,

I am honored to be endorsing Tony Epps for the position of Sheriff for Prince Edward County. Tony is an honest, trustworthy and respectful man who has high standards which guide his life and actions. Having known Tony all my life, I have personally experienced his professionalism as an officer and his compassion for others.

When my home was broken into, Tony responded immediately, even though he was not officially on duty, and was successful in arresting the offenders and returning all of my possessions.

Countless times, I have witnessed his support to this community without ever seeking personal recognition. His dedication to public service is unwavering and his desire to implement community policing programs is commendable and forward thinking.

I feel Tony’s experience and education in law enforcement make him a qualified candidate; however, I strongly feel his sense of integrity make him an excellent citizen leader. Tony Epps will move the Sheriff’s office forward, will protect and serve all citizens, and will be a fair, dependable, and attentive Sheriff for Prince Edward County.
