The Columbia County Conservative Party has announced their endorsement of Sheriff David P. Bartlett for reelection in November. Bartlett, a registered Republican, received the Conservative’s backing in his 2013 race as well.
“For decades, the Conservative Party has strongly advocated for policies and legislation that would help keep our citizens safe. I am honored to receive their endorsement for reelection as Columbia County Sheriff, and I thank them for their continued support of law enforcement,” Bartlett said.
In making their decision, the Conservative Party’s Executive Committee cited Sheriff Bartlett’s experience, dedication to the job and citizens, and impeccable work ethic as reasons for their endorsement. The committee also praised the Sheriff’s programs to increase school safety and initiatives to combat the heroin epidemic.
