Yantachka Endorses Cafferty for Sheriff

I would like to take this opportunity to endorse Ed Cafferty for the position of Chittenden County Sheriff

I have known Ed for many years.  He is an honest and straightforward person, a respected member of the Vermont State Police and an adjunct professor of Criminal Justice at Community College of Vermont.  His credentials make him well qualified for the position.

But qualifications are not everything.  Ed has a vision of what the Sheriff's department can be beyond what it is today. The department is responsible for transport of prisoners, for courthouse security, for traffic control and, when contracted by municipalities, for police services.  Ed proposes to expand those responsibilities by actively working with other police agencies in illegal drug enforcement and prevention, creating a Community Advisement Committee, and instituting safe home and business programs.  Also important in my opinion is his strong support for universal background checks for all gun sales, an issue that I also hope to address in the upcoming legislative session.

So, I encourage you to vote for Ed in the Democratic Primary election on August 26th.  If you will not be available to go to the polls then, you can vote by absentee ballot anytime between now and the election by contacting our Town Clerk.  You can find more information about Ed at his website: caffertyforsheriff.blogspot.com.
