To the Editor:
I am writing this letter with no disrespect to the other candidates vying for the sheriff’s position in Morrison County, but I do have to put my foot out there to let you know that Shawn Larsen is the right man for the job.
I have known Shawn for many years. His respect for others is commendable. He is approachable, dependable, dedicated and just an all-around good guy. As a business owner (for over 25 years), there is a need to have a trusting relationship with the sheriff and his department. There is no doubt that Shawn will have that relationship with business owners.
I am on the First Response Team for Bowlus. Shawn has helped our team in many ways. He keeps us updated on drug-related issues and has taught us what to look for and how to respond to them. He has kept us informed and updated on how to help people in a crisis. Shawn is professional and thorough. His Critical Incident Response Team (CIRT) leadership depicts just the type of man Shawn is — caring, helpful and considerate. He leads people.
Shawn’s strong family values and Christian beliefs keep him grounded. He is the right man for the job. — Jordie Stay, Bowlus
