Barry Smith, is he truly the correct choice?
Let me assist those in question… with the educated answer. Let me start by stating something relatively simple at face value, “experience matters.” However, let’s not just state what is seemingly obvious… let’s delve deeper into what “experience” entails, in relation to the position in question.
The climb — Let’s take a closer look at what it takes to obtain the current level of leadership that “our” Sheriff holds. This is what dedication looks like. This is commitment, hard work, perseverance, and unmatched servitude to our community and its residents.
Deputy 1995 — the beginning of service
Corporal 2005-2007 — 12 years of dedicated service
Sergeant 2007-2010 — 15 years of continued dedication and service

Captain 2016-2017 — 22 years
Chief Deputy 2017-2021 — 27 years

Depicted in solid data above you will see just what it takes to obtain such a title… imagine the work, imagine the hardships this community has faced, imagine the tenacity of a man who fought from deputy… to Sheriff. Why? Barry Smith cares and he aspires to continue to lead the community that inspired him, to make it better, and to enhance the safety of its residents. A career, better yet a “legacy” built on respect, integrity, and servitude. THIS is why experience matters, THIS is why Barry Smith deserves your vote, and this is why Barry Smith is truly… the correct choice.
