McClure would serve Blair County well

I am writing to support Sheriff Sam McClure in the upcoming election for Blair County sheriff.

I have known McClure for a long time and have really had the opportunity to get to know him as a friend.

McClure has dedicated himself to serving and protecting the citizens of Altoona and Blair County for more than 25 years.

He knows the job as sheriff because of his role as chief deputy and now as appointed sheriff.

He also has the mentor experience from Sheriff Mitch Cooper, who has given McClure his full support.

In addition to being an outstanding law enforcement officer and leader in this area, McClure is extremely active within the community and is a loving father and husband.

I am extremely confident in Sheriff Sam McClure to be our next sheriff of Blair County.

Ryan Baranik, Altoona
