Wake up, Clark County! Now isn’t the time to be complacent when people like Rey Reynolds are running for sheriff.

Reynolds prides himself as being the “constitutional sheriff.” A law enforcement officer of his caliber should not be proud of being selective as to what he’ll enforce based on his own interpretation of the constitution. That’s not his job! 

If he wants to conduct himself as such, he needs to attend law school and become a judge! His opponent, Horch, will conduct his job as a sheriff without inserting his own personal agenda. Vote with a conscience. Vote John Horch.

  1. We The People Vote Republican

    Who Cares about John Horch’s achievements, John Horch only wants to step up and have more Power… Rey Reynolds is a man of Integrity and loves his community he may not have a long list of achievements, but honestly that shouldn’t matter, its being a leader and know how to lead. I encourage everyone to VOTE REY REYNOLDS they right man for the JOB!!! because with Horch we will get another Sheriff Chuck Adkins.

  2. Mike S.

    Reynolds may be a nice guy, loved by his mother and friends, but he has no business being the head of Clark County’s law enforcement. He imagines a county sheriff has precedence over county, state and federal law. S/he does not. A county sheriff must enforce all laws within his purview; it’s not a matter of individual discretion.
    To claim otherwise, as Reynolds does, is a complete distortion of the law. We don’t need a wacko as our county’s head law enforcement officer.
