To the Editor:
I am writing to urge Miami County voters to cast their vote for the candidate for sheriff with integrity, dedication to Miami County, and institutional knowledge Dave Duchak. I had the pleasure of working with Dave when I was the Chief of Police in West Milton from 2008 to 2014.
Many of the issues facing the sheriff’s office faced all county law enforcement agencies and as a result, the chiefs of police and sheriff’s office administrators meet monthly to discuss and solve problems as a group. Dave was always knowledgeable on the issues and was engaged in the problem-solving process; he often took on projects that added to his workload and provided him no personal benefit.
There is an old saying that rings true on this year’s election in the Miami County Sheriff’s race as well as the prosecutor’s race: if it’s not broken, don’t fix it! Dave Duchak is currently providing excellent ethical leadership and excellent service.
