Ok, first let me say Clark Burton has not been in law enforcement for 10 years because I haven't been in law enforcement 10 years and he was hired after me. Secondly, when there is a murder on the day before Christmas or Christmas or whatever....guess what...that is what you signed up for and would hope dispatch wouldn't say "well its Christmas and the officers are off work, we will get to it after the holiday". 3. He wouldn't ask someone at the office to do something he wouldn't do himself because he CAN'T do it himself and needs help and guidance. 4. He has NOT worked every corner of the Sheriff's office. That is absurd. He has not idea how to run 75% of the SO. Working in positions for a few weeks does not make you an expert, you just know what butts to kiss. 5. Yes, he was raised, worked, etc. in Union County but he has had no choice. His academic standing wouldn't allow him to go to college or go anywhere else. 6. Clark is a nice kid. I don't mean him any harm but he is no Sheriff. I really can't believe he is running but he didn't have any competition and Ken is supporting him so for a while I was afraid but not now!YOU should vote for Clark because he's dedicated the last 10 years to this county and improving it for the better. He cares about his job, in fact he loves his job. He is the type of person who will do anything in his power to help someone else... most of the time people he doesn't know. He cares about the men and women working for him. He also cares about giving Union County residents a sense of security and locking up people who are bringing drugs into this county and causing other crime. The last murder we had-- was the day before Christmas. Do you think Clark was home with his family like you and I? NO. He was out beating the streets looking for a murderer... he didn't do it alone but he also didn't pass it off on those below him. Dedication. Drive. Determination. He would never ask someone at the office to do something he wouldn't do himself. Clark cares about the well being of the county--- he knows we have problems... instead of saying it's not a big deal he's trying to find out ways to fix them. He's responsible for bringing in K9 dogs to the force. He's got a good head on his shoulders and while they may be young shoulders-- he's worked every corner of that sheriff's office and could run it by himself if he was elected tomorrow. BUT not just run it, improve it. That's not just his plan and goal but that's what he's actively working towards and he's already started as chief deputy. While Clark hasn't worked with the FBI he's worked HERE-- right here in Union County the place he loves and knows like the back of his hand. I've seen him work and I've seen the compassion and drive he brings daily to work. He's the man for this job.
Would you like some more reasons? We can do this all day.
I know Clark and Bryan better than I know Mike but my vote is for Mike! Let's bring some KNOWLEDGE to this county. Let's bring someone that doesn't get promoted just because of who they know. Mike definately has my vote!!!
