The Miami Herald has endorsed Sheriff Al Lamberti. Perhaps the Herald will send out reporters to track down Scott Israel’s missing campaign treasurer’s report?
Here is the release from the Lamberti campaign:
Fla. – Sheriff Lamberti is honored to receive the endorsement from the Miami Herald for his re-election as Sheriff of Broward County in November.
The Miami Editorial Board expresses how, “Al Lamberti has led the Broward Sheriff’s Office with a steady hand during a challenging time of budget cuts and increased demand for his agency’s services.”
Since becoming Sheriff in 2007, the Board recognized how Sheriff Lamberti “has made laudable strides,” by instituting county wide crime prevention initiatives to make our streets safer, enhancing diversity among the agency by promoting African Americans, Hispanics, and Women to high ranking executive positions, and how he has ran a streamlined and efficient public safety agency.
Sheriff Lamberti’s commitment and strong leadership over the largest multi service fully accredited public service agency in the nation has also earned him several additional endorsements from:
