Supports Jeff Asher for San Juan County sheriff

Jeff Asher will make a great sheriff.

When I was the public defender for San Juan County, Jeff’s work as a deputy was so good, it made my job difficult. The prosecutor’s case is only as good as the investigation and report. Jeff’s investigations were thorough. His reports were extremely detailed, accurate and relevant. His testimony in court was precise and well-delivered. His demeanor was calm and courteous. Juries loved him. It was hard to win a case if Jeff was the responding officer!

Jeff is qualified as a field training officer. He is also a certified diving instructor. As leader of the Dive Team, he provides constant training to his team members. I have every confidence that, if elected, he make sure every deputy and detective receives the training they need — from field work, to accident reconstruction, to investigation, report writing, and drafting search warrants. Cases are won or lost on these details.

A vote for Jeff will help ensure that every case has the best chance of a successful prosecution, which, in turn, helps protect public safety. I whole-heartedly endorse Jeff Asher for San Juan County sheriff.
