Ex-WIFE: Grimm for sheriff

There are numerous reasons to vote against the other candidates in the race for Kootenai County Sheriff, but I’m here to tell you why I support and will vote for John Grimm.

I know he has the personality, the intelligence, the common sense and the human decency to fulfill the responsibilities of the county Sheriff. How do I know?

I’ve known John for more than 37 years and we were married for 23 of those. We raised four children and built a successful business together. John is a good dad and our children are doing well as adults (as Mike Pence said about Donald Trump, you can’t fake good kids).

John has been a father figure to the young men in his Boy Scout Troop, as well as others who were in need of a positive male role model. He taught them the value of hard work, honesty and integrity. Given his experience as a Reserve Deputy, I’m certain he will be respected and liked in the Sheriff department.

John understands budgets and finances. Even during lean times, he made sure payroll was met, bills were paid, his family provided for. I could always count on John to make sound financial decisions which is a trait that is especially needed as a public servant.

I know firsthand John is a man who is trustworthy, honest and is committed to serving the people in our community. He doesn’t just say he’s a leader. He is a leader, and is hands down the best choice for Kootenai County Sheriff!
