The choice is obvious! Looking at the candidates for Sheriff, Justin Smith has my vote. Not only has he demonstrated his commitment to the community as a deputy over the last 20 years, he has gained the support and respect of his peers in the public safety community. In talking with Justin, here are some of the things that I found out. Justin has been a guest panelist for Leadership Ft. Collins, preparing future leaders for our community. Justin is routinely an invited panelist for the State Chiefs and Sheriffs Association Training Institute for command officers from around the state, preparing law enforcement leaders from around the state. Just last year, Justin was an invited guest speaker for the FBI National Academy in Washington DC, preparing police leaders from around the globe. These are pretty impressive credentials. All this from a man who also has dedicated a career to protecting our 2nd Amendment right! The citizens of Larimer County need a Sheriff who is prepared to lead the agency from day one ˆ Undoubtedly, that man is Justin Smith. Please join me in supporting him.
