Vilas County sheriff understands Constitution PDF Print E-mail

Letter to the Editor:

Earlier this spring, Vilas County Sheriff Frank Tomlanovich, along with a few other county sheriffs from the North Woods, offered up some of his valuable time to sit on a panel that focused on questions surrounding the constitutional powers of the office that he holds.

Held in Iron Mountain, Mich., the open meeting saw more than 200 interested citizens in attendance who had come to hear law enforcement officials openly and honestly answer a variety of questions focused on constitutional law enforcement practices and on their feelings about further restrictions on Americans’ rights under the Second Amendment.

As one of several Vilas County residents who attended, I can attest that we were all very proud to have our own sheriff there articulating and displaying a solid understanding and steadfast commitment to the United States Constitution.

It is comforting to know that we live in a county whose top law enforcement official is committed to liberty, freedom and the protection of our individual right to defend and protect ourselves. It seems these days too few take the time to actually read and understand the U.S. Constitution, so I believe we are very fortunate to have a sheriff here in Vilas County that does just that.
