To the editor:
I would like to take this opportunity to extend my appreciation to the voters of Essex County for your vote of confidence in electing me as your next Essex County sheriff. After more than three decades of serving Essex County as an appointed officer, I am gratified to have your vote of confidence in this election.
Whether you placed a sign in your yard, gathered signatures for my petition, participated in the committees or just simply passed the word, your support is what put me in office, and I truly appreciate that support.
I would also like to extend my appreciation to the political committees of the county for giving me the opportunity to bring myself, my credentials and my candidacy before you. The town and county committees were very fair and attentive, and again, thank you for your time and efforts on behalf of the residents of Essex County.
I look forward to serving Essex County for the next four years and will fulfill the duties of sheriff to the best of my abilities.
Essex County sheriff
