Support Aukes for Sheriff

I support Cory Aukes for Sheriff. I've worked at the Sheriff's Department since 1998, In that time, Cory Aukes has been the officer that I look up to and respect the most. Cory Aukes has continued to be one of the hardest working deputies, even with the extra supervisory duties as sergeant, maintaining one of the highest case loads on the department.

Deputies have always gone to Cory for advice or questions concerning their own cases, even before he was a sergeant.  Cory has always been willing to help out a deputy or citizen, and if he doesn't know an answer, he will find out. I believe Cory's proven leadership to the department, along with his hand's on approach to issues, is a tremendous asset to the citizen's of Hubbard County. I have complete confidence that Cory Aukes will be able to successfully manage the Sheriff's Department budget. In fact, I know Cory Aukes will apply for grant monies that the Sheriff's Department so desperately needs, and is currently not applying for or getting.

I believe it is important that our next Sheriff is in tune with the issues that are going on in our community. As the former School Resource Officer in Nevis and Laporte Schools, I know that a commitment to proactive enforcement and education concerning illegal drugs and alcohol is imperative to the safety of all the citizen's of Hubbard County. I know Cory Aukes feels the same way. This is why I feel it is important that I support Cory Aukes for the next Hubbard County Sheriff.
