Open letter to Door County Voters

By Garey Bies       

One of the Offices on the Ballot this Election is for the Office of Sheriff. This Office will affect our daily lives more than any other on the Ballot. I am writing this to ask you to Vote for Chief Deputy Pat McCarty. In my opinion Chief Deputy Pat McCarty is the person who is the most Qualified.  Both candidates are nice people and hard working. As the former Chief Deputy I got to know both them when they were hired.

Chief Deputy Pat McCarty started his career in Jail/Radio division he then moved on to the Patrol division for 17 years and the last 4 years as the Chief Deputy. In the Patrol Division in a small rural Sheriff's Department like Door County you get exposed to all types of Law Enforcement issues.  Many of the issues are serious, high stress, life threatening situations where your training and experience is the thing you depend on. Chief Deputy Pat McCarty is the only Candidate with this Experience. This Experience is what keeps the citizen safe as well as the Deputy. Chief Deputy Pat McCarty knows what it is like to respond to or have a vehicle stopped, where it becomes life threatening, and your backup is 15-20 minutes away or more.  Chief Deputy Pat McCarty is the Only Candidate with that Experience. Chief Deputy Pat McCarty was also the SWAT team Commander. The only Candidate with that Experience

As Chief Deputy, Pat McCarty is the Administrative head of the Sheriff Department which oversees all division of the Department. Chief Deputy Pat McCarty is the only Candidate with that Experience.

Pat McCarty is an active member of his community. He and wife have been Married for 22 years and they have one son who is a student at St. Norbert's. Pat coached football for 24 years at Sturgeon Bay High and Southern Door with the last 4 years as Head Coach for Southern Door. Being a coach and Head Coach should speak volumes about his character of his ability to be a leader.  His 8 years of service to his Country in the U.S. Army and Wisconsin National Guard says a lot about his commitment of service. No other candidate for Sheriff has this Experience.

In conclusion I ask you to consider Voting for Chief Deputy Pat McCarty because he the only person who is ready for the JOB, the moment he takes the Oath of Office. He will not need On The Job Training. He will not have to check with someone else on what to do. He will not think He is a CEO who just sits behind a desk looking for someone else who has the experience to do the job.    VOTE Pat McCarty for SHERIFF
