With the election for Culpeper County sheriff rapidly approaching, it is time for the people of Culpeper to make an informed and serious decision on who we want to represent our community.

Sheriff Scott Jenkins has proven himself as a true leader in the law enforcement community.

Under his leadership, the Culpeper Sheriff’s Office has continued to demonstrate a commitment to community-based law enforcement and the commitment to serve and protect residents.

Jenkins has an opponent for the position who, although he is a respectable candidate, has never demonstrated the leadership this county deserves. Mid-management law enforcement experience and a desire to become sheriff is not what is in the best interest of Culpeper.

Jenkins and his staff have proven they have the leadership skills, commitment to the community, and dedication and ability to provide the highest level of service for all the people of Culpeper.

My family has firsthand knowledge of the professionalism Jenkins and his deputies have demonstrated, when a family member recently was a victim of a violent crime. The actions taken by the Sheriff’s Office during this difficult time speak volumes to their dedication to duty and commitment to public service.

As residents of Culpeper, we deserve and need a proven leader who knows the difference between right and wrong, and is willing and able to confront the challenges that law-enforcement professionals encounter every day.

A vote for Sheriff Jenkins will allow Culpeper to continue to be a safe environment to raise our families in, ensure all people are treated fairly and with respect, and continue to ensure the safety of everyone in the county.
