We’re very happy to receive the following endorsement from Scott Rand, a volunteer with the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office. Scott is a well-respected member of the EPSO family and a well-known community member in the Black Forest area. Thank you, Mr. Rand.

“My name is Scott Rand and I have a long history with the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office as a volunteer in several capacities. What I have learned through my many contacts within the department is that our current Sheriff, Bill Elder, makes any former Sheriff look like a choir boy.


I have only met Sheriff Elder on a couple of occasions, informally, and have no personal vendetta against him, however, I have heard enough trusted voices  ‘through the grape vine’ that I have little faith in his abilities to continue to lead our county law enforcement agency in a fair and unbiased manner.  Personally, during the last election, I was a staunch supporter of Jim Reid and if he was running again I would be by his side!


I am throwing my support behind challenger Mike Angley.


I trust that you will vote your conscience after due research.”
