Reader Opinion: Vote Goddard
As a parent and business person in the community, I have become increasingly concerned about the safety of children in our schools. I was most impressed to learn that Capt. Scott Goddard, candidate for Crow Wing County Sheriff, implemented the ALICE program to teach students and teachers how to respond if faced with an active shooter event. He is a lead instructor in the Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate program and has offered this information to county employees, community partners, businesses and citizen groups. A parent himself, Captain Goddard has shown compassion and concern for all our children in Crow Wing County and is committed to protecting these most vulnerable citizens. Currently as a leader in the sheriff's department, he has demonstrated collaboration skills to ensure this critical training in our school and communities. Join me in voting Scott Goddard for Crow Wing County Sheriff.
