Vail Daily letter: For van Beek
Vail, CO, Colorado
My name is Elda Romagnoli and I’ve known James van Beek for 18 years. I was a little girl the first time that I met James, and thinking back on that day I can remember how humble and kind he was getting down from his patrol car and coming over to say “Hi” to us. He would often drive through our neighborhood to say “Hello.” That is something that is rare nowadays. James is the type of person to go over and above to help someone, no matter their background.
Through the years, he has never lost touch with his friends, family or community, always checking in to see how things are going. I have the utmost respect for him. He’s intelligent, honest, confident and caring. I am proud to call James my friend.
These are some of the attributes we want brought back to the community. So remember when you go to vote Nov. 2, vote for James van Beek, who will be a first-class sheriff for our community. I know that there isn’t a better candidate for Eagle County sheriff than James van Beek.
