To the Editor:
I am writing this letter on behalf of Thomas (Tom) Justin. Tom has filed for the office of sheriff in Morrison County. I have known Tom for many years. I myself have been in law enforcement for 27 years. I was elected to serve as the sheriff of Wilkin County in 2011 and have filed again for another term.
In the past few years, Tom has been instrumental in the ARMER (Allied Radio Matrix for Emergency Response) project in Wilkin County. Tom committed and dedicated many hours to inform the Emergency Services and citizens of Wilkin County about the layout of the ARMER project. This was not a simple task, but with his help the project was completed on time.
I believe that with Tom’s law enforcement experience, his many years of leadership and dedication to his family, Tom will be a great asset to the sheriffs of Minnesota. If I were a Morrison County resident, my vote would be for Tom Justin. — Rick A. Fiedler, Wilkin County Sheriff, Breckenridge
