Reader Opinion: Klang, proven leader

Eric Klang's clearly the choice for Crow Wing County Sheriff.

Eric's outstanding record of service to this county is unmatched, showing he can serve and lead—in multiple capacities including police chief, undercover drug enforcement, and of course sheriff. He's shown continued commitment to excellence by enhancing his skills with interdepartmental collaboration and education including graduating in 2017 from the FBI academy and obtaining his Bachelor of Science degree in criminal justice administration.

He was there to explain real issues of human trafficking in our community. He was the guy thinking ahead who helped the sheriff's department equip their squad cars with the technology enabling them to be updated on crimes in real time. He knows how to implement what is needed because he has done the job! Excellent record, incredible commitment. Eric will be the sheriff that keeps doing what needs to be done for a safer community.
