To the editor:
I want to lend my support for John Ball, candidate for Madison County Sheriff. John is not a politician and running for office is new to him. John is an experienced leader, veteran and cares deeply about the safety of the citizens in Madison County.
Many of us long for real leadership. A true leader is a person who dedicates their life to serving their fellow man. It is a person who through their knowledge and experience makes us feel secure, protected and acknowledged when times get tough.
John Ball has 35 years of public service. He served in the Navy, served as undersheriff in Madison County before appointed to sheriff, and his experience in Homeland Security is impressive. John Ball knows Madison County.
On November 7, cast your vote for John Ball for Madison County Sheriff.
