THE SHERIFF BELIEVES

Lately, I've heard rumblings about different issues.  For instance, since I don’t have a section on our website or Facebook page dedicated to being a “Constitutional Sheriff”, I don’t uphold the Constitution of these United States including the 2nd Amendment.  I assure you this is not the case.  You see, I don’t have to advertise everything I believe in.  I believe in God and the bible, yet there are no religious references on our website.  I believe in every person’s right to pursue life, liberty and justice, and yet there are no references to it on my website. 

Never mind the fact that I processed 822 Conceal Carry Applications last year.  If you were to see those applications, you would see my signature on each and every one of them.  It’s not a stamp; I take the time to sign each one.  Never mind the fact I have been attempting to secure money to upgrade equipment in our office to assist the CCH applicants.  Never mind the fact I have spoken publicly about my views and my support of the 2nd Amendment.  Never mind the fact that when I was sworn in I swore an oath to support the Constitution of the State of Kansas and the United States.  Never mind the fact I take that oath seriously. 

I believe in showing the people I swore to protect and serve what I am all about by my actions; not by throwing up postings on our website or our Facebook page.  Why?  Those are not the places to push my personal agenda.  Those are the places to put out information to the people of this great County. 

Thanks for listening; I just wanted to get that off my chest.
