I have known John Bocciolatt for about 30 years and worked with him in the Portland Police Bureau (after being laid off from the New York Police Department, when the city had financial problems in 1975).
There has never been a question regarding Johns integrity, work ethic and sense of fairness.
He will bring a tremendous amount of experience and knowledge to the sheriffs office.
Johns personality will help further positive relationships with the Jefferson County Sheriffs Office and other law enforcement agencies, community organizations and the citizens of Jefferson County.
I absolutely trust John Bocciolatt to do the best things for the citizens of Jefferson County.
When you elect John, you will be glad you selected the best person with the experience for the job.
