Paul Best would be best for city sheriff
Joe F. Brown III
Published: October 28, 2009
Paul Best is the “best” choice for Charlottesville sheriff.
I am a police officer who works for a local police department. I have experienced Paul Best’s capabilities firsthand.
I attended the police academy with Paul, and over the past 15 years I have witnessed Paul’s honesty, trustworthiness, compassion and overall professionalism in the performance of his job.
He has worked in several roles as a police officer and a detective, partnering with the citizens of Charlottesville to increase the quality of life for those who live, work and visit the city.
Paul is running on an independent ticket. He believes a law enforcement officer’s duty is to the citizens and not to any particular political party.
He would work to improve the sheriff’s office and its functions by reducing overall budget costs through programs such as a volunteer citizens reserve deputy program.
He is also committed to developing and improving senior and youth programs.
When you cast your vote on Nov. 3, remember Charlottesville’s “best” choice for sheriff is Paul Best.
