I live in a house divided over politics. In the 3rd Congressional District race Joe Kent, Heidi St John, Jaime Herrera Beutler, and Marie Gluesenkamp Perez all received votes from my house. We run the spectrum of political views here and we choose to respect each other’s views and just love the person.

The one candidate we all agree on is Rey Reynolds for sheriff. That’s because we have all met him and we have experienced first hand his servant’s heart. When he talks about his belief in “compassionate accountability,” we know he means it. For a justice system to work, criminals need to be held accountable for their actions but they should also be treated respectfully and not be abused while in custody. 

With 37 years of law enforcement experience right here in Clark County, Rey Reynolds understands the law enforcement needs of this community and recognizes that those needs are not currently being met. When we call 9-1-1 because a crime has been committed, we expect the Sheriff’s Office to send a deputy out to take a report and hopefully arrest the perpetrator. In most cases that is not currently happening. In many ways our community has become unsafe and under the current Sheriff administration, it is only getting worse. WE NEED CHANGE! 

Rey Reynolds will clean up the toxic working environment the deputies currently work under. He will ensure that the staff is receiving the training they need to keep the community as well as the deputies safe. With a clear vision of serving the community, attracting and retaining deputies will be much easier. 

These are the reasons that Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, and Independents all agree on Rey Reynolds for Clark County Sheriff.
