Should Officer Be Allowed To Campaign For Candidate?

In the Aug. 22 issue of the Roundup, a letter from Detective Chris Haack appeared in the "mailcall" section, promoting "Dino" McCarthy for sheriff of Gila County. I guess I'm wondering about the appropriateness of a law enforcement officer campaigning for an individual in an open forum such as the Roundup. Perhaps there is no town policy with regard to such matters, but it seems inappropriate for Mr. Haack to be using his detective position to campaign for "Dino" McCarthy.
