Editor, Times-Union:

I've never written a letter of support for someone, so I'll keep this short and sweet.

I am supporting Donald Wiesehan for County Commissioner. I worked for and with Don Wiesehan at the Sheriff's Office and Don always had my back when I was a jail officer. There was never any question on where you stood with him. He always stood by his officers and supported them. It was the same leadership he consistently had while working on the patrol division.  

Thorough, level headed, practical and leader are words to describe what he brings to the table. Don always took a calm approach to a situation, getting both sides of the matter before going forward with a plan and that is how he will be as a county commissioner.

Don is not running for this elected position for the health insurance that commissioners receive. He is in it to effect real change in a positive way.  

The reasons I have stated and knowing Don's integrity are the reasons I will be voting Don Wiesehan for county commissioner.
