Retired county sheriff for Gaylord | Letter

During my 24 years as the sheriff of San Juan County (1987-2010) I worked with three different elected prosecutors. Randy Gaylord was the prosecutor for 12 of those years.

I have seen firsthand and up close his professional and thoughtful approach to the varied and complicated duties of the prosecutor. He is extremely organized in managing and directing his legal staff. His role of advising and representing other county officials is always based on a careful analysis of all the legal issues. In his role as coroner, he has set the standard for other small counties throughout the state for procedure and protocol. Thorough in his research, Randy always worked hard to balance the needs of the victims, the defendant and the county’s citizens, which can be difficult at best when taking legal action.

Randy is well respected throughout the legal community, both in our county and around the state. Our county needs an experienced and professional prosecutor. He has earned my continued support.

Please join me in voting for the re-election of Randy Gaylord as prosecutor of San Juan County.
