Letter to the Editor: Support for Pat McCarty

As an experienced law enforcement professional, who completed 32 years of service in three different communities, two as Chief of Police in Northeastern Wisconsin Cities and as a graduate of the FBI National Academy, I feel compelled to endorse the most qualified candidate for the position of Sheriff of Door County. I know both candidates and both are good people, but only one has the leadership experience needed to supervise, manage and oversee the entire operation of the Door County Sheriff’s Office. That candidate is Chief Deputy Pat McCarty.  Mr. McCarty has proven himself over and over in the various roles he has fulfilled in his career. Mr. McCarty while serving our country in the United States Army with the elite 101st Air Borne Division, rose to the rank of Sergeant, a leadership position.  He has worked in many aspects of the Sheriff’s Department. Mr. McCarty commanded the S.W.A.T. which successfully handled a number of dangerous incidents here in our county, everyone one of those incidents ended peacefully, without anyone being hurt. That is leadership! For last four years Mr. McCarty has participated in the overall operations of the Door County Sheriff’s Department as the Chief Deputy. As the second in command of the entire department he has participated in every aspect and responsibility that the agency has. Please put your political party aside, put friendships aside and put personalities aside and vote for the person with absolutely the most qualifications and successful leadership experience, Pat McCarty.
