I am writing in support of electing Bob Murstig for the position of Umatilla County Sheriff. I have known Bob for over 20 years on a professional basis and as a friend.

I have found Bob to be very honest and trustworthy. He sets high goals and strives to achieve those goals whether professional or personal. He is a good organizer and leader.

He was promoted to the position of sergeant with the Pendleton Police Department due to his leadership abilities and he maintained that position for nine years until his retirement.

Prior to being a sergeant he was a corporal for seven years. Bob was in a supervisory position for 16 years of the 24 years that he was with the Pendleton Police Department.

I know from first hand experience that Bob established a very good working relationship with other law enforcement agencies in our area. I feel that this working relationship with the other agencies would be an added benefit to help provide services for the people of Umatilla County.

Bob has very good people skills and has a sincere interest in being your next sheriff. I am voting for Bob Murstig for our next Umatilla County Sheriff and I encourage you to do the same.
