Pat Pickar is our clear choice for sheriff. I recently had some situations with my teenage son who was getting into some trouble. Pat came to our house and had a lengthy conversation with him about the poor choices he had been making and the consequences of those actions. He offered us solutions and suggested things my son could get involved in. He personally offered his assistance in connecting him with the right people. He went above and beyond for our family and was sincere with his approach. I think Pat is changing the perception of law enforcement and showing us that officers are people who care! This is the kind of man that we need as our sheriff. Someone who leads by example, is involved in the community and cares about the wellbeing of our citizens.
