I believe that Mike is very capable to serve the people. He is the only qualified candidate for sheriff capable of carrying out the duties of this position. Although I’m not a Lake County resident, when I align the other candidates and their leadership and administrative experiences to that of Mike Brown, I am convinced that Mike Brown is the best candidate for Lake County Sheriff.
