I am writing a letter in support of West County Commission Candidate, Chris Castlen. I have known Chris for well over 25 years. I met Chris while he was assigned to my Marine Corps Reserves unit in Evansville, Indiana. Chris displayed a strong work ethic and a desire to excel on both a personal and professional level. While serving his county he also attended Western Kentucky University with an ambition to get into a law enforcement career.
Chris was hired in 1996 by the Owensboro Police Department and has been serving his community since. Aside from working within Daviess County, Chris and I both served on the Kentucky Tactical Officer’s Association board as a director, representing Western Kentucky law enforcement. His willingness to help develop the law enforcement profession has been displayed throughout his career.
With Chris’ understanding of community needs, safety, and his diverse law enforcement relationships, Chris would be well suited to help enable managed growth in Daviess County and supportive of county services to the betterment of their citizens.
