LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Writer believes Robinson the right choice in Lake County

To the editor,

For those of you who have not had the privilege of meeting our sheriff, Lake County Sheriff Dennis Robinson, let me tell you something I discovered about him. 

First off, keep in mind that I have only briefly met him but wanted to know more because of the election. What I discovered was he is quite the hobbyist when it comes to creating rustic wooden furniture. His work is amazing! But what is more amazing is he donates some of these treasures to different townships to be auctioned off with the moneys going toward whatever program best benefits that township. 

Another fact I came across is that Sheriff Robinson, on his own accord, constantly applies for grants that directly benefit the county’s EMS and fire fighting agencies. He has had a lot of success with these grants and a lot of the proceeds also went toward the upgrade of the patrol cars, saving money for the tax payers of Lake County. 

I spent 32 years in the military fighting for our freedom, and when I run across an individual that does the right things when no one is looking, this is called integrity, my friends. 

What an essential and qualifying trait to portray as a person and sheriff of this great county. Enforcing the law and keeping our citizens safe needs someone like Dennis Robinson! 

So, in my opinion, I must say there’s only one right candidate for our upcoming election.
