Election a turning point in Law Enforcement

Election a turning point in Law Enforcement

This election is a turning point in Law Enforcement in Larimer County. This is why we must elect a Sheriff who puts the Law first. Al Ohms is not that man. Campaign finance reporting and open campaign finance records are vital to the democratic process. Both the Colorado Constitution and Colorado Statutes recognize that it is important to for the electorate to see who is funding our candidates. County candidates were required to file their first campaign finance report on July 20, ... Full Story

Vote for Justin Smith for Larimer County Sheriff!

Vote for Justin Smith for Larimer County Sheriff!

Dear Editor: I have seen a great deal of candidates come and go through Larimer County. I am very impressed with Justin Smith, candidate for Larimer County Sheriff, and his credentials to lead the Sheriff’s Office. Justin has the professional experience, education and respect required to be a great sheriff. His career in law enforcement started in 1987, and he has spent nearly 20 years of his career serving the citizens here in Larimer County. Justin is a graduate of the FBI ... Full Story

Justin Smith only realistic choice

Justin Smith only realistic choice

Dear Editor: Justin Smith is the only realistic choice for Larimer County Sheriff. Justin has worked in local law enforcement for nearly 20 years and has administered the Larimer County Sheriff’s budget, managed the detention center, responded to emergencies and most importantly, patrolled the streets of this community and responded to victims in Larimer County for most of his career. He has achieved numerous law enforcement awards and furthered his professional education ... Full Story

Sheriff’s job is local issues

Sheriff’s job is local issues

Dear Editor, In our local race for county sheriff, a few believe that the candidate of choice is one that will stand with people “who plan to protect our nation at all costs” (Jeffry Aufderheide, Wellington, Coloradoan Letter to the Editor, July 3rd). Much is being made of concerns about the power of our federal government, our porous national borders, and our constitutional rights. These are expansive concerns we should all share with our state and national ... Full Story

Please vote for Justin Smith

Please vote for Justin Smith

Dear Editor: Our sheriff’s race seems to be filled with candidates with little to no experience, or experience that ended years ago. There is however one exception. Justin Smith is a current commander at our sheriff’s office and he has served there since 1991. He has worked as a patrol deputy, K9 officer, investigator, sergeant, and division commander over administrative functions, the jail, and operations. Justin Smith also obtained his Masters in Criminal Justice ... Full Story

Supporting Richard Ball for State Senate

Supporting Richard Ball for State Senate

To the Editor, Currently, all of Larimer County except Fort Collins is “represented” by three individuals appointed to their positions by a few conservative Republicans. They support the views of only the most conservative voters. We need broader representation. This year Rich Ball, a lifelong Loveland resident, has stepped up to offer that broad representation. He is running for Senate District 15, which covers all of Larimer County except Fort Collins. Rich was born into a ... Full Story

NISP debate heats up

NISP debate heats up

Please accept this letter on behalf of Troy Bredenkamp, Executive Vice President of the Colorado Farm Bureau. In their recent letter about the Northern Integrated Supply Project, Save The Poudre’s leaders Gary Wockner and Mark Easter don’t use facts, but only distorted opinions to suggest NISP is a hazard to agriculture. They make the false claim that they represent the agriculture community in their opposition to this critical water project. It is unfortunate that Wockner and Easter ... Full Story

Justin Smith most qualified candidate for Sheriff

Justin Smith most qualified candidate for Sheriff

First, I'd like to thank Mr. Bruning for 6 years of military service. Next, I'd like to thank Major Justin Smith for his 20+ years of Law Enforcement experience. Justin's credentials for the position of Larimer County Sheriff far outweigh those claimed by Mr. Bruning. Of course, if Mr. Bruning would decide to let people know what experience he had to offer from the missing 19 years of his life, we might be able to look at his experience levels differently. To us, and many citizens of Larimer ... Full Story

To the editor

To the editor

With a $43 million budget and 420 employees, the office of sheriff needs a person who has the business experience to handle these. The right person could save taxpayers' money by streamlining the sheriff's department. That person is Carl Bruning. Carl brings the kind of leadership needed to manage an organization effectively. His executive business experience and leadership experience as an U. S. Air Force officer and commander position him for success in this role. Endorsements also say ... Full Story

Smith, true lawman and public servant

Smith, true lawman and public servant

I’ve been watching the Sheriff’s race with some interest over the last several months and I have to ask; who is this Constitutional Carl that recently arrived on the political scene? I’ve attended candidate forums and speaking engagements and to be honest, I’ve yet to hear any real substance from him. He simply espouses the kind of rhetoric that we’ve all come to expect from aspiring politicians over the years. Once you cut through the rhetoric, he appears to be just ... Full Story
