Reader Opinion: Goddard the only choice

Being a former military member, police officer, deputy sheriff and 19 year police chief for the city of Breezy Point, I know first hand what it takes to run an effective law enforcement agency. I've known Capt. Scott Goddard for 24 years and have had the opportunity to watch him grow in his leadership and management skills and I cannot express enough how fortunate the citizens of Crow Wing County are to have him as part of the current leadership team at the sheriff's office. The voters have the privilege to elect Captain Goddard to the highest law enforcement position in the county on Nov. 6. Without question, the only logical choice, for so many reasons, is Captain Scott Goddard. He will continue to work towards curbing the drug epidemic, working with local partners to address the rising mental health issues and explore new ways to keep us safe.
