Personal attention matters in sheriff race

I am writing in support of Bucky Absher for Ashe County sheriff.

As a frequent visitor/part time resident of the Lansing area during the last four decades, I have had occasion to meet Absher first when he was a deputy on a house break-in call and later in 1997 as a detective when I was a victim of a much more serious crime.

You can tell a lot about someone’s character by how they treat people long before they ever thought about running for office. Absher gave me his home phone number and was there to answer the many questions I had as my case made its way through the courts, as I had never been shot at before.

Absher discharged his duties in a reassuring way that came across to me at the time as taking a heartfelt interest in seeing to it that justice was done.

The good people of Ashe County will be well served to promote from within the department and elect Bucky Absher for sheriff.
