Vail Daily letter: Van Beek for sheriff

Dear Eagle County citizens,

As the elected sheriff of Eagle County from 1983-2003 this letter is written in support of James Van Beek, Republican candidate for Eagle County sheriff.

I worked with James for over 12 years and during that time, I found him to be morally just, compassionate and someone who would listen to and help others.

James has always been enthusiastic, committed and could be trusted to carry out assignments and organizational values as a deputy, a field training officer and as an investigator.

Over the years James has grown in many directions, demonstrating self-respect, competence, commitment, integrity and leadership skills. He will give a hundred percent to see that an established mission is accomplished within the parameters of public safety, customer service, fiscal responsibility and our Constitution.

James is an involved and committed member of the community and will be a good sheriff who will represent all citizens and guests of all ages — someone you can trust and have confidence in.

I encourage you to support and vote for James Van Beek in the Republican primary June 24!

A.J. Johnson
