LETTER: LC Knight has earned re-election vote

  • Updated

To the Editor:

I want to take this time to express my support and public backing to re-elect Sheriff LC Knight in the up-coming election. Our families have known each other for over 60 years. In the early years, there were times we differed politically; however, we have always maintained a friendship and a deep mutual respect between families.

Sheriff Knight has proven himself as a dedicated member of the law enforcement agency. He has time and again shown his allegiance to the citizens of Dorchester County and continually demonstrates his loyalty to the safety and welfare of our community. He has an impressive law enforcement service record — having severed for twenty-eight years with the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division and over ten years as the sheriff of Dorchester County. He is a distinguished member of both the community and the law enforcement community.

He takes a hands-on approach when it comes to county concerns, and his office is always open to speak with residents. His officers are always respectful and go above and beyond to ensure the safety of all citizens. The Sheriff’s Department takes every call and situation seriously and works to see it through to the end. They are always in call to protect and serve the citizens of the community and take every step to monitor areas of concern and do everything possible to prevent any illegal or potentially harmful situations for occurring. Sheriff Knight believes in having a strong presence in the community to help promote safety at all times.

I highly suggest we consider all the past record of service and look at his success rate when heading to the polls this June. LC Knight is an asset this community cannot afford to lose. Please help me support Sheriff LC Knight!
