I have been a peace Officer in Wilson County for 20 years. I do not have a problem with another candidate running for office, it is a fair avenue for voters to choose the best candidate. The problem I do have is when a candidate uses deceptive and misleading comments in his campaign. Mr Burchell would have you believe our County is saturated with gang activity, prostitution and pedophiles on every corner. In my 20 years I have not witnessed nor have I received a call on gang activity or prostitution in this County. In regards to sex offenders, they have been and always will be closely monitored under Sheriff Tackitt's administration. Myself and every other Deputy in this Office have children and take sex offenses very serious and have some of the best investigators continuously monitoring these type of offenses. Mr. Burchell's idea of monitoring school zones during certain hours is a fine idea but, when you consider we have more school zones than Officers on patrol it is unrealistic. These are peak hours for burglars and our Officers have to be ever vigilant in patrol in hopes of thwarting burglaries. This is not Bexar County and at this time we need to utilize the resources we have and prioritize where they serve our residents in the most crucial areas. We do patrol school zones during our patrols and I think we have been doing an excellent job. The fact that we have not had any major incidents in our school zones speaks for itself. There is a reason more and more residents are moving into Wilson County, and I suspect law enforcement plays a big part in that decision. Mr Burchell himself cited an incident in the forum that happened to him and his family in Bexar County, his response was he immediately moved, I believe to Wilson County. Lets keep in mind there is a reason Sheriff Tackitt has been Sheriff of this County for the last 20 years...he cares. It is easy for a candidate to tell you what he is going to do, but another to follow through. All the certifications in the world do not make a good Sheriff but actions do and Sheriff Tackitt has proved through the years he has made Wilson County a safer place to live. Sheriff Tackitt is one of the most honorable and dedicated man I have ever met and has proven this with actions, not words, and when he does speak it is based on fact not rhetoric to merely solicit votes. Sheriff Tackitt has maintained a respectable and dedicated law enforcement standard for this County and will continue to do so. I hope you will vote for a proven candidate and not someone who would have you believe the sky is falling. Vote for Sheriff Joe D. Tackitt Jr. For the continued success and growth of Wilson County.

Thank you

Randy Broom
