Sheriff Donny Youngblood, I support you 100%. I would like your assurances that RIOTING, BURNING and LOOTING will not be tolerated. These actions must be stopped, arrests made, prosecuted and if found guilty, punished. Destruction of City, County and personal property must stop. All statues, monuments or Historic items must be protected. I believe this to be VERY important to our community, American culture and heritage.

Thank you for your service as our Sheriff. Hope you run again. You would have my vote.
