Harvey Perleberg is my choice for jailer. He has twice the experience of his opponent.
I worked with him at the jail from 1997 to 2000.
He is compassionate. One night an elderly lady came to the jail and rang the buzzer. We went out to see what she wanted. She was crying and worried about her grandson and afraid something would happen to him. Perleberg took the little lady’s hand, looked her in the eye and said, “Ma’am, I give you my word he is safe. I will keep him safe. Dry those eyes, go home, get a good night’s sleep. I will be here all night when my relief gets her in the morning, I’ll tell them to keep an eye on him.”
Two weeks later the lady returned to thank him for his kindness.
I’ve seen him pull money out of his own pocket to buy clove oil for an inmate with a toothache. I also witnessed his humor and ability to put inmates at ease.
I feel the county needs Harvey Perleberg as jailer, so please vote for him Nov. 2.
