Supports professional lawman for sheriff



I have been an emergency medical technician from 1980-2002, and I have had the opportunity to work with law-enforcement officers from across Aiken County. One of these officers whom I have had the opportunity to see in action is Lt. Mike Hunt with Aiken Public Safety.

There is no doubt in my mind that Lt. Mike Hunt has all the requirements needed to be one of the best sheriffs Aiken County has ever had. Lt. Hunt carries out his duties in a highly professional manner, and it is obvious from seeing him work that he cares about people.

Lt. Hunt cares for everyone he comes in contact with, and there is no doubt in my mind that politics will take a back seat to his will to serve the citizens.

Being affiliated with a volunteer fire department in the county, I have seen and heard the frustrations of various fire departments dealing with the county dispatch system. It is obvious to me that certain areas of the sheriff's office need overhauling and one of those is the dispatch center. I know that Lt. Hunt will make the necessary changes needed to improve the overall services of the sheriff's office.

"I like Mike" for sheriff and if you want a person in the sheriff's office who will be responsive to your needs, I encourage you to vote for Mike Hunt, too.
