Reasons to back Mims

Here are just a few reasons Margaret Mims has my support for the non-partisan position of Fresno County Sheriff.

She is a dedicated law enforcement officer who has served Fresno County as a member of the Sheriff's Department for 23 years, and has efficiently carried out the duties given her.

She has earned the respect of sheriffs throughout the state of California.

She will not need time to acquaint herself with the duties and responsibilities of being our sheriff.

She knows what needs to be done and how to accomplish it.

The criminal element does not want this tough lady as sheriff.

She does not pull any punches when asked a question and does not worry about giving a politically correct answer; her answers are honest and forthright. Ask her a question; if she does not know the answer, she will find out for you.

Margaret Mims is not receiving a retirement pension from a prior career.

Margaret Mims chose to run for sheriff, she did not need to be asked.
