Gillen is proven leader and best man for sheriff

To the editor:

This Nov. 6, we elect a sheriff for the county of Aroostook. This spring I consulted my friends in the law enforcement profession on who the best candidate for sheriff would be. For sure these people shall know best as they work with these candidates every day. It became very clear early on that acting sheriff Shawn Gillen was the man for this job. I ask everyone to talk with the people who have worked with both candidates.

Shawn Gillen is a proven leader unanimously endorsed and supported by the men and women he works with. This includes every single deputy sheriff, police chief, and prosecutor of Aroostook County.  Many officers from other agencies also support Shawn for his impeccable reputation. For me this speaks volumes. We need a sheriff that has this reputation of working well with his team and other agencies.

Shawn reverently takes the oaths he took to our constitutions very seriously and upholds the rule of law for our free society. The many conversations I have had with him, confirm to me how seriously he takes this job and his oaths. I strongly support and endorse acting sheriff Shawn D. Gillen for Aroostook County Sheriff.
