To the Editor,

I have had the pleasure of knowing Wess Winn since 1990. We were competitors on the baseball field and later played with Wess on his dad’ team. I looked up to him in many ways. He has always been dedicated and hard-working. Wess showed leadership and dedication to the sport. We became friends through baseball and stayed friends through life. He has been a police officer for 12 and a half years and has been dedicated to protecting the community. Me, my wife and our two boys live in the county. My family has started to attend church with the Winns. Thanks to Wess and his family, we feel like we have found a church home for our family.

My family lives in the county and we would feel very comfortble if Wess was our elected sheriff. We ask that you please get out and vote for Wess, as my wife and I endorse Wess wholeheartedly.

Jud Hartson,
