Letters to the Editor

Longtime dedication

To the Editor:

Ever meet someone and know almost immediately that he is a good person, genuine and truthful?

We work within several veteran-related organizations. Honoring our requests for aid, Undersheriff Andrew Zinke has ultimately assisted in the physical and moral support of these heroes, the strength of this vital community and, ultimately, our country.

We also have watched Zinke in community service at a patriotic senior ladies knitting group. He comfortably addressed their uneasiness regarding home security, possible problem areas within their community, scams and more. The wealth of his long-acquired experience and local knowledge assured all he well knew their neighborhoods and understood their concerns.

When meeting the people who serve under him, all have echoed his professionalism and commitment to this dynamic community.

Such dedication to quality of service, to the protection of our families and community flows from those in charge. This is where Andrew Zinke deserves to be.
