Dear Editor,

My name is Roy Raines. I retired from the Jefferson County Police Department and WAMZ radio (traffic reporter). I first met Jim Crouch when he was hired as an EMT for Jefferson County. Jim is the kind of person that if I needed help I would want to see him arrive. Jim worked hard to advance himself through the ranks to command many men and women and always had everyone’s respect. Jim is a man of honor and true to his word. It would be to the benefit of everyone in Washington County if he was elected Sheriff. In closing, I find it a great honor to endorse Jim Crouch as Sheriff of Washington County.

Dear Editor,

My husband and I were married 24 years ago, and we were living in Louisville at the time since he was a paramedic for Jefferson County EMS. He really wanted to move back to his home town of Springfield for us to raise our family. I wasn’t sure I wanted to do this, but since I am from a small town, too, I finally agreed.

Now, after being in Springfield for 24 years, I can’t imagine living anywhere else! I have met so many wonderful people in my 23 years as a home health nurse in Washington County. But as much as I love Springfield/Washington County, my husband loves it even more. Yes, my husband is Jim Crouch, Republican candidate for sheriff.

All of those years that he drove to Louisville to work, he so much would have rather been here, but had to make a living for our family. Now he wants nothing more than to serve you as sheriff. He is passionate about making a positive difference here.

I am endorsing my husband for sheriff, not just because he is my husband, but because he is honest, fair, hardworking, and a wonderful man who just wants what is best for our county. If he is elected, he will put his whole heart into serving you, because that is the type of person he is. A vote for Jim Crouch is a vote for the change we need, for the future of our children and grandchildren. He will do all in his power to make Washington County a better, safer place to live.
