I would like to express my full support for Sheriff Doug Giddings. I have known Doug and his family for nearly 20 years. I also think Doug’s record speaks for itself. Recently, there have been several unfounded allegations regarding use of county equipment and other matters. I have spoken to Doug and believe that these are mostly rumors and largely unfounded with false conclusions drawn mostly by those who oppose him. No one makes perfect decisions all of the time, no matter who is sheriff.
Everyone needs to be aware that Doug stands up for our rights with federal authorities, including the Forest Service, BLM and the U.S. Attorney. Doug is the first line of defense against abuse and creeping federal authority. He is a big supporter of our constitutional rights, including the 2nd Amendment, and should we need to ever defend our rights, I know Doug will stand with us.
I know Doug to be a practicing Christian, honest, hard-working and God fearing, who will give his all in whatever he does. We will not agree with anyone all of the time, but Doug is the kind of person that we all hope we can vote for in our national elections but never seem to get the chance to.
