Letter: Barrick’s knowledge, experience set him apart
The duties of the Sheriff for Mathews County are courthouse, court security, civil process and law enforcement. I am confident that, if elected Sheriff of Mathews County, Mark Barrick will provide the needed services to the citizens of Mathews. Mark’s knowledge and expertise make him a great sheriff candidate.
I am confident that he will make the Mathews Sheriff’s Office a highly respected agency by the citizens and amongst its peers. I also feel that Mark will put enforcement and prevention strategies in place to combat the drug problems plaguing the community. He is very knowledgeable in the areas of patrol and criminal investigation techniques. He also knows the importance of getting civil and criminal process served in a proper and timely fashion.
I have known Mark Barrick for approximately 25 years. In fact, I have worked side by side with him and always found him to be very knowledgeable, conscientious and fair in conducting himself as a law enforcement officer. Mark has always had a strong interest in serving the public.
I have spent the last 29 years in law enforcement and know Mark to be highly respected in the law enforcement community. I strongly encourage the citizens to support Mark Barrick for Sheriff of Mathews County on Election Day.
