To The Daily Sun,
We have an opportunity this year to elect a man to the office of Sheriff of Belknap County who is truly unique.
Mike Moyer has been involved in law enforcement in Laconia for 27 years, starting out as a patrolman, then going through the ranks as corporal, detective, sergeant, lieutenant, captain, all the way to chief of the Laconia PD.
Along the way, Mike always treated everyone that he encountered with respect, and as an appreciated human being first. Whether as a patrolman stopping a car, or as a detective investigating a crime, each person was treated with respect; as a person that counted. As an officer in command, he treated his fellow officers as valued men and women, whom he appreciated and depended upon.
When Mike Moyer speaks to you, he will look you in the eye, and you will have his full attention, and he will listen to you and hear what you are saying. These qualities of appreciating people as people first, and understanding that one particular situation doesn't need to define this particular human being for the rest of their life, is what makes Mike Moyer a very special person, and a very special law enforcement officer. It is why someone that Mike had arrested in the past, felt that it was necessary to let Mike know that they would support him in his campaign for Sheriff of Belknap County. This person respected Mike, and understood that Mike did what was necessary at that time, and appreciated that Mike had treated them respectfully.
I believe Mike Moyer will be a sheriff in the style of Dan Collis. I doubt you could find anyone that would find fault with Dan. He was a man that all respected, and a man that respected others. He had an ever-present smile and a desire to be the very best he could be for the people of Belknap County. I see Mike as the same opportunity to have a man that will take this very important job and give it his all, and give the people of Belknap County a Sheriff that will uphold the law, respect the people, respect his officers, and do his utmost to defend and protect the Constitution.
I thank Mike and his wife Robin for taking on this campaign, and I hope I have the opportunity to soon call him Sheriff Mike Moyer.
