Vail Daily letter: Fire chiefs for Hoy

It is without hesitation that we support Sheriff Joe Hoy in the upcoming election.

When Sheriff Hoy was first elected in 2002, we experienced a new level of leadership. Sheriff Hoy quickly realized that there were issues that did not directly pertain to his office. Redirecting his focus to issues that were important to his department brought a new found respect to the Sheriff’s Office.

That heightened level of respect along with teamwork allowed all county public safety departments to work well with each other. We now work safely and effectively together, due in part to Sheriff Hoy’s mission to improve county wide cooperation.

Sheriff Hoy has proven his commitment of safety to the citizens of this county.

He has implemented many positive programs including teen driving courses; self defense programs; and a DUI crash car.

Because of his commitment to the School Resource Officer Program, we now have four school resource officers.

Sheriff Hoy and his staff were instrumental in supporting the new “move over” law which requires motorists to move over one lane when public safety vehicles are on the interstate handling an emergency. This has proven Sheriff Hoy’s commitment to all of the county Public Safety Emergency Departments.

Sheriff Hoy’s record speaks for itself. We see no reason to elect a new sheriff at this time. We would appreciate your support for Joe Hoy as sheriff. Please come out and vote.
