I would like to take this opportunity to endorse Jim Raymond for Franklin County Sheriff. I have known him for more than 30 years both professionally and socially. We worked together on the Pasco Police Department. Raymond worked for me in the detective division. I was impressed by his ability to grasp the details of a given situation and then take the proper course of action. He worked hard to improve his ability to deal with suspects as well as victims.
That hard work paid off, and he became a great investigator, and later on, the leader of that division. He rose through the ranks and excelled as his experience in leadership and administrative duties expanded. He is currently a captain. His knowledge, skills and ability will make him an excellent choice for sheriff of Franklin County.
I have laughed, cried, eaten, hunted, fished and prayed with Raymond. I have seen him handle the ups and downs of life with tact and good common sense. I have seen his vision to improve the Franklin County Sheriff's office. I urge the citizens of Franklin County to elect Jim Raymond the sheriff of Franklin County.
TERRY TRULSON, Pasco
