We support Ed Cafferty for Sheriff
Ed is our brother-in-law, friend, and next door neighbor (married to Susan Krasnow), but we support his bid to become Chittenden County Sheriff for many, more important reasons. Well qualified, he will be proactive in modernizing the office, hiring women Deputies (currently none), effectively advocate for more community drug prevention programs along with drug treatment facilities, and give strong support to universal background checks for gun purchases. Ed also will make good on his promise to institute transparency in the Sheriff’s office by establishing a Community Advisory Committee, providing oversight and advice on the use of your tax dollars, and employing his renowned administrative expertise.
This race will hinge on “turnout” and your vote effect will thus be multiplied 5-6 fold due to an expected 10 percent historical record. Seven or eight thousand votes from the entire County could win this race. You can vote early at Town Office or request an absentee ballot now. We sincerely hope the CVU District represents Ed’s winning margin.
Please consider a look at Ed’s website: caffertyforsheriff.blogspot.com to learn more about his impressive efforts and qualifications. Please join us in giving our vote to Ed any time before or on Aug. 26.
