Thanking D’Agostini

From page A5 | January 30, 2013 |


An open letter to the editor of The Mountain Democrat regarding El Dorado County Sheriff John D’Agostini:

Sheriff D’Agostini,

Please know that I have carefully read your outstanding letter to VP Biden regarding your refusal to obey unconstitutional laws and executive orders. With great pride, I have forwarded your letter to friends and acquaintances across our great state and nation.

It would be such a tremendous understatement on my part to just offer you a simple thank you for the courage and tenacity that you have displayed in keeping every promise that you made during your campaign a couple years ago.

The content and form of your rare character, outstanding leadership skills and fidelity to the Constitution of The United States are now very evident to every informed, educated and knowledgeable citizen of this historic and wonderful county. One can only hope that the uninformed and naive will make an effort to educate themselves to be able to see and understand the obvious truth of where our country is being steered.

You have and continue to lead by example and in my seven years of active military service I know first hand that there is no finer form of leadership. Unfortunately today’s military and elected officials do not appear to have your leadership skills, spine, vision, responsibility to your oath of office and keeping the promises made to myself and many other El Dorado County constituents.

You have both my approval and unshakable support in this regard.

Respectfully and with warmest regards,
