Vail Daily letter: Van Beek for sheriff
June 9, 2014
I am supporting James Van Beek for sheriff. I have known James since 1994 and feel honored to count him as one of my friends.
In order to be elected to public office a candidate must have three principle qualities: Integrity, trustworthiness and vision. James Van Beek exemplifies those qualities and more. He has a proven record of accomplishment and fosters the ideals that make Eagle County better.
Throughout his life James has shown a willingness to set aside his private interests in order to work hard for our county. James recognizes that the best most enduring decisions involve discussion, listening to others, contemplation and the courage to be decisive. James believes the decision making process must be open, transparent, and inclusive. James continually gives back to our community with the volunteer work he performs for a variety of organizations.
Please join with me in voting for James Van Beek.
