Sheriff's name on department vehicles

Gus Philpott
Woodstock Advocate
August 12, 2009


I have just loved how so many people have taken up the issue of whether the (any?) sheriff's name ought to be on a sheriff's department vehicle.

It has been a tradition. It utilizes subliminal programing. You see "Nygren" (or the name of any other sheriff) so many times that you are mesmerized into voting for him when you see his name on the ballot.

The issue is not the removal of the name of the current sheriff or the money saved by painting on a new name.

The issue is that the County Sheriff is the agent of the People. And for that, knowing that the sheriff is the agent, it's not necessary to have his name or my name or any sheriff's name on any County-owned vehicle!

But you all already knew that.
