Letter: Support for Pixley
I have had the privilege of knowing both Mr. Dave Brown for approximately seven years and the privilege of knowing Mr. Brian Pixley for approximately 15 years.
Both men are good family men and good citizens. However, being a good husband and father does not mean that one would automatically be a good sheriff.
Mr. Pixley is the only candidate with the proper experience, knowledge and certifications. These include corrections duties, marine duties, supervisory duties and executive duties. Lt. Pixley is also Columbia County Sheriff Office's public information officer, a field training officer and a supervisor for the enforcement deputies assigned to the road.
As I mentioned earlier, I believe Dave Brown is an honorable man; however, a great many of his financial support and backing is from disgruntled and unethical former employees.
If anyone has any doubts about these assertions, I challenge Mr. Brown, Mr. Pixley and all of their primary supporters who are or were Columbia County employees to make public their personal files.
