The Aiken County Association of Fire Chiefs publicly endorsed Mike Hunt for sheriff of Aiken County on March 5. One might ask, what is the link between the association of fire chiefs and a sheriff's candidate?
The answer is that the two must work hand-in-hand on issues related to the public safety for the citizens of Aiken County. Issues such as 911 communications, arson detection and homeland security top the list.
Mr. Hunt knows the issues and, with his experience and expertise, we feel he is the best man for the job. Mr. Hunt is an outstanding law-enforcement officer who always gets the job done, and that is why we need him as our sheriff. Vote Mike Hunt for sheriff on March 25.
Mark Key, New Ellenton, S.C. (Editor's note: The writer is the president of the Aiken County Association of Fire Chiefs.)
