This letter is in support of Dale Lancaster for sheriff of Somerset County.

I have known Dale for more than 25 years, during which time I have watched his career grow. Over that time, he has developed unparalleled experience necessary for the work he is offering to perform for us.

His training has included the FBI academy and the State Police Academy. He has investigated major crimes and handled complex investigations. He has more than 20 years of supervisory experience.

Crucially, for the job of sheriff, he has experience putting together a budget and dealing with the complex arena of human resources.

He is remarkably well prepared for this task.

Most importantly, Dale is a good human being. He is straightforward and thoughtful. He has a broad and comprehensive view of law enforcement within a community.

Somerset County will be fortunate to be served by Dale Lancaster as sheriff.
