To the Editor:

This is in support of James Clarke for Sheriff. I do not blindly support someone just because someone says to. So I don’t expect anyone readying this to do the same. I research each candidate and decide on the best one. Which I would think any responsible voter would do.

So simply put, James Clarke is the best man for Isle of Wight and we are lucky to have him. He is a true leader from his military background to his current role in the sheriff’s office.

I personally worked alongside James Clarke when he was with Smithfield Police. We worked, went to school and graduated with degrees in criminal justice. We worked side by side for seven years. He never wavered in his integrity or in his work ethic. I trusted him with my life and now I trust him to lead the county forward, not backward. Vote for who is right for Isle of Wight and that is James Clarke.
