The job of Sheriff, especially in Lake County takes a very special person to be successful. Caring and especially understanding the people and the diverse communities within Lake County are paramount. Commitment and the willingness to serve the people are also crucial characteristics for Sheriff. Our current Sheriff Don Bell, has been faced with many difficult decisions since being elected four years ago. Not everyone has been happy with them.
I have known Don Bell for over thirty-five (35) years. During these many years I have always found him to be a caring and understanding servant of the people.
Don Bell is giving the citizens of Lake County every ounce of himself. As a taxpayer what more could a person ask for? His door is always open and willing to listen to any problems you may have. You couldn’t find a more honest man. He is doing the best job he knows how to do.
Don Bell has my support and more importantly, my vote. I hope you will join me in re-electing our Lake County Sheriff, Don Bell.
