I have never been more appalled in reading a letter until I saw the one regarding a candidate for Cumberland County sheriff. The letter spoke of Mike Edes running for sheriff with little to no management expertise, as he was a sergeant in the Maine State Police and has never managed hundreds of employees or anything close to a $17 million budget.
I do know Cumberland County Sheriff Kevin Joyce. He rose up through the ranks at the Sheriff’s Office and manages the operation extremely well, and does make the tough decisions leaders have to make day in and day out.
Kevin Joyce is a proven leader and a lifelong Democrat. His opponent has changed from Republican, to independent, and now to Democrat. Now he wants to change from supervisor to one of the top law enforcement leadership positions in the state. Let’s stick with our current sheriff, Kevin Joyce.
