Letter to the editor: Vote Swank for sheriff

On May 19, I encourage every registered voter to exercise his or her constitutional right to vote and vote for Richard Swank for sheriff.

Rich served 26 years with the Air Force as a security specialist with four tours in the Middle East. His training includes five years active duty, two weeks every year, and one weekend a month. During his 22 years in the Pennsylvania State Police, Rich served as a patrol officer specializing in vice and narcotics. Rich has worked with every Centre County police department and the Centre County, state, and federal court system. He also has a degree in criminal justice.

If elected, he is dedicated to turning the Centre County Sheriff’s Department into the most respected in the state by hiring the most qualified candidates, providing them with all necessary equipment, using his experience to train his staff along with the free training offered by the state and federal government, applying for all available state and federal grants, using technology to streamline the department and eliminating any wasteful spending.

On May 19, please vote. If you are a Republican, color in the dot next to Richard Swank; if you are a Democrat, write in Richard Swank so the county can benefit from the training and experience of the most qualified candidate for sheriff.

Neal Cromarty
