Vail Daily letter: Van Beek for sheriff
Vail, CO, Colorado
As a 35-year resident of Eagle County, I would like to express my support for James Van Beek in his campaign for Eagle County sheriff.
I have known James for the better part of 15 years and have found him to be a man of honesty, integrity and accountability, all very necessary characteristics in serving the citizens of Eagle County and its diverse population.
James has spent the last few years working in the Middle East, helping war-torn countries build a community policing network where none previously existed. James’ experiences have taught him tolerance, acceptance and resourcefulness. I am encouraged that his knowledge and experience building these systems will help to repair and strengthen our own.
James has committed to working with and for the people of Eagle County by increasing cooperation between the various community organizations, engaging the community in problem solving, and enhancing the satisfaction of those working in the Sheriff’s Office. I believe he will work to do all this and more and is our best choice for the next Eagle County sheriff.
