St. Clair County was once a community of neat and orderly homes and farms. Seldom could you find a locked door, even at night. The harsh realities of our worsening economy has changed that. Vacant, foreclosed homes abound on every street and road. Where we once were a magnet to industry and a safe place to live, we have become an economic desert, only crime flourishes.
The joblessness and despair have turned some of our most promising to crime and drug abuse. Aside from the fields of corn and soybeans we are much like the giant abyss to our south, Detroit. The only marked difference is we still have some time. The war against crime and drugs—and it is a war—can be won. Economic good times will return. We cannot allow the casualties of this era to forever condemn us.
Only one man has the experience and vision to see us through this period. Tim Donnellon knows the combatants and the terrain from experience. Success can only be garnered with such knowledge, to think otherwise is absurd. Lots of people can make plans or have ideas on how to stop crime but none is more capable to carry them out than Tim Donnellon.
A gunsight is only accurate with a keen eye. He will act on analysis based upon experience, not impulse and not with doubt or half-measures. Just like seasons require different clothing, times require distinct individual qualities. Tim Donnellon is the only candidate for sheriff that possesses these attributes. The epitome of Tim Donnellon is much like a compass, always straight and true to his convictions.
Let us once again unlock our doors. Elect Tim Donnellon to sheriff.
