Best candidate

Dear Editor:

There is no better candidate to move our sheriff’s department forward than Rich Valdez. He has the necessary experience at every level to succeed as our next sheriff.

Rich is an effective listener and as a leader, this is extremely critical. We believe Rich has the right vision to move our county to the next level in law enforcement. He knows and understands Archuleta County, having lived here over 40 years. Most of all, Rich has the honesty, integrity and energy we need in 2014 and moving forward to help the sheriff’s department build on its strengths. He would work diligently on developing his team and strive for continuous improvement. Rich has our votes.

Brent and JaNae Christians
