Vail Daily letter: Van Beek for sheriff

It is with distinct pleasure that I write this letter of support for James van Beek.

Working as county clerk and as a county commissioner, I have known James for many of his 25 years living here in Eagle County.

James van Beek is intelligent, dedicated and skilled at his job of 20 years in law enforcement experience. He has an extraordinary ability to analyze problems and outline necessary actions. He is hard working and devoted to the people of Eagle County. James has proven that listening and caring is good, but that doing something is better. We can depend on him to do both. He has a deep commitment to his job and is a man of enormous character.

In his performance of his duties, James has gained the respect of his colleagues for his hard work and decency. All of his good qualities will serve our county and state well when he is elected. This is why I do not believe we can elect a better sheriff.

I say vote: James Van Beek, yes; Daric Harvey, no.

Johnette Phillips
