I am writing to endorse the candidacy of Jason Trundy for sheriff for Waldo County.

Since 2019, I’ve had the privilege of knowing Jason as a friend, community servant and member of the board of the Game Loft (legal entity, Maine Youth Alliance). Knowing Jason, as I do, I believe he will make an excellent sheriff for Waldo County and a worthy successor to Jeff Trafton.

Jason is connected to our community. He has lived and worked in Waldo County his entire life. Jason has a record of competence. As deputy sheriff, he knows and understands the department, has served in many roles and been involved in many innovations. Jason is compassionate. His approach to law enforcement is to develop initiatives that prevent and alleviate issues such as substance abuse, mental illness, poverty and homelessness faced by many members of our community. Jason contributes to the community as a member of Belfast Rotary, Lincolnville Select Board, and as past president and current board member of the Game Loft, among other organizations.

Jason has a vision of community based public safety based on caring for all. I worked with him on our board and know he practices what he believes.

Waldo County would be fortunate to have Jason Trundy as our next sheriff. I urge you to cast your vote for Jason Trundy.
