I have spent the last 12 years of my professional life devoted to improving the Gila County Sheriff’s Office into the agency it is today with staff dedicated to serve and protect our communities.
In the past 10 years, crime in unincorporated Gila County has decreased by 60 percent, while crime in the county as a whole, including cities and towns, has decreased 47 percent. These statistics are verifiable through the Uniform Crime Reports published by the F.B.I.
During the time, I have witnessed Adam Shepherd develop into a very competent supervisor, manager and commander. He provides authentic, genuine leadership. For that reason I support Adam Shepherd as the next Gila County sheriff.
I am asking that you not be fooled by the attempts to discredit Adam Shepherd or the Gila County Sheriff’s Office by those who have hidden agendas of their own. I believe Gila County deserves a knowledgeable, effective sheriff, not simply an eager politician.
I am asking you to vote for Adam Shepherd who has the demonstrated, proven leadership to be our next sheriff.
