Richard Soyka, Sauk Rapids
The primary voting is over. Steve Soyka was first for Steams sheriff. Only one candidate remains for Stearns County sheriff who has sheriff-department experience. That is Patrol Sgt. Steve Soyka. He previously had four years with the Benton County Sheriff Department and currently has 23 years with the Stearns County Sheriff Department.
His opponent has NO county sheriff department experience. As a retired Benton County commissioner, I know the Sheriff Department experience counts heavily for someone to be sheriff. In the upcoming general election, who would you rather have as your sheriff – someone without any sheriff-department experience or someone with 27 years of sheriff department experience?
Patrol Sgt. Steve Soyka is the obvious choice to be your Steams County sheriff. Remember the three S’s when you vote for Steams County sheriff in the upcoming general election: Stearns, Sheriff, Soyka.
As Steve’s dad, I thank you, in advance, for voting for Steve Soyka as Stearns sheriff.
