Longest Serving Sheriff in the State Endorses John Brownlee
Another pillar of law enforcement endorses John Brownlee!
BROWNLEE HONORED BY ENDORSEMENT FROM CHESAPEAKE SHERIFF
Yesterday John traveled to Chesapeake, where he was extremely honored to win the endorsement of Sheriff John R. Newhart. Sheriff Newhart is the "Dean" of Virginia Sheriffs; he is currently the longest-serving Sheriff in the Commonwealth.
In endorsing John, Sheriff Newhart said, "John Brownlee has an impressive record of service. He has served his nation in the Army, and he has served the citizens of Virginia as United States Attorney. John has proven himself a true friend of the law enforcement community, and as Attorney General he will strengthen ties between that office and local law enforcement."
Sheriff Newhart joins nearly 100 other law enforcement leaders from around the Commonwealth in endorsing John and his campaign for Attorney General.
There is a reason nearly 100 law enforcement officials have already endorsed John Brownlee. They know John's record as a prosecutor. His opponents have no such experience. More likely than not, these law enforcement officials have worked with John on cases. It is very important that our next AG be " a true friend of the law enforcement community."
It is becoming clear that true friend is John Brownlee.
