Seidl well qualified for Brown Co. Sheriff

To the editor:

It is not often that present or past party activists from different political parties see eye-to-eye on a candidate running in a primary, but with a candidate with the experience and knowledge that Jason Seidl would bring to the office of Brown County Sheriff, it is an easy thing to do. We join together in supporting Jason Seidl for Brown County Sheriff.

Present Brown County Sheriff Rich Hoffmann said recently in a statement of support for Jason: “He has 24 years of experience with the Sheriff’s Office, 12 years as the Chief Deputy, and knows the Sheriff’s Office through and through.” That is a very convincing endorsement.

Jason has successfully managed a $3.9 million budget for the last 12 years, making additions and deletions that are necessary for the optimum use of our tax dollars. He has the ability to work with other departments, which is crucial to the ongoing success of the sheriff’s office.

In addition, Jason has some great ideas that he would like to implement if elected. Among those that we are most impressed with are: Upgrading the Jail/Law Enforcement Center’s security and camera system; adding a K-9 unit and a drone to the Sheriff’s Office to be used as a county-wide resource; and hosting bi-monthly meetings with senior citizens and community members about current scams, financial fraud, and trending law enforcement issues.

We urge you to support Jason Seidl for Brown County Sheriff in the August 14 primary.
