Former Drug Force commander supports Seidl

To the editor:

My name is Jody Gladis and I just retired from the Marshall Police Department after 31.5 years of service. I am writing this letter in support of Chief Deputy Jason Seidl for Sheriff. I was the Drug Task Force commander from 2012 until my retirement in July 2018.

I have had the opportunity to work with Sheriff Hoffmann, Chief Deputy Seidl and their department on numerous occasions. I can say that I’ve had a great working relationship with both of them and their department. Their staff was professional, helpful, and hardworking. This shows me great leadership, cooperation, and direction.

Chief Deputy Seidl is understanding and supportive of the task force. He has always forwarded information that he had obtained from a complaint or concerned citizen. Jason has always been honest with me and asked questions to be properly informed.

I have also had the opportunity to work with Jeff Hohensee as a task force agent under his command. It takes more than one person to make a department a success, which is the reason I am endorsing Jason Seidl for Sheriff. Chief Deputy Seidl understands that it takes a team to make things work and be successful.

I fully support Jason Seidl to be the next Brown County Sheriff.
