I have known Duke Schirard for many years. He was always helpful, honest and caring as marshal of Bayfield. He did a great job.
I also have had real-estate business dealing with Duke, and again he has always shown honesty and integrity.
When he decided to run for La Plata County Sheriff I realized how lucky we were as citizens of La Plata County to get him. I have voted and supported him ever since. He is honest and tells you how it is whether you like it or not. He always puts the citizens of La Plata County first. Duke cares about our county and has done a great job.
I understand his opponent is a talker with future ideas, I just haven't found any of his ideas that have impressed me, and he just doesn't have the experience for the job.
My vote will stay with Duke Schirard. Honesty and experience is what La Plata County needs. Please join me in re electing Duke Schirard for sheriff.
