Vail Daily letter: DA favors Hoy for sheriff

Mark Hurlbert
Vail, CO, Colorado

As you make your decision and cast your votes for Eagle County’s sheriff, I urge you to vote for the candidate who embodies a modern and professional Sheriff’s Office. To vote for the candidate who has taken the Sheriff’s Office into the future by training his deputies for 21st century crimes. To vote for the candidate who has provided the leadership to work closely with the District Attorney’s Office and other police agencies. I urge you to cast your vote for Joe Hoy for sheriff.

In the seven years that I have been your district attorney, I have worked closely with Joe on many issues, both big and small. Every time we have met, I found Joe to be open, frank and knowledgeable. And even though we have disagreed from time to time, we have always been able to disagree without being disagreeable. He is a sheriff that we can continue to work closely with.

He has taken is upon himself to have his deputies trained on the latest crimes. Whether it is keeping our children safe from Internet predators or keeping all of us safe from those who wish to take our identities, Joe has provided the opportunity to his staff to keep Eagle County from being a haven for these offenders.

In short I urge you to vote for the candidate who is the embodiment of a modern sheriff. I urge you to vote for Joe Hoy for Eagle County sheriff.

Mark Hurlbert

5th District Attorney
