Last night over 75 people packed a home in Hamilton to show support for candidate for Sheriff, Eric Noble.[read_more] The crowd included Middleburg Mayor Betsy Davis, Hamilton Mayor David R. Simpson, Hamilton Town Councilman Dimitri Kesari, Delegate Dave LaRock, Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio, and Commonwealth Attorney Jim Plowman. Many former Loudoun deputies were also in attendance.
In his introduction of Eric Noble, Loudoun County Commonwealth Attorney Jim Plowman endorsed Noble over incumbent Sheriff Mike Chapman, saying,
“We’ve completely strayed away from a local policing model in favor of an ineffective big government style approach.”“We need to get back to focusing on the ‘broken windows’ in our communities with a leader that understands the role of local law enforcement.”
Who would know better what Loudoun needs in a Sheriff than the Commonwealth Attorney who works so closely with the Sheriff? As the person who prosecutes criminals in the county, Jim Plowman must work constantly with the Sheriff and his office. If he says the current Sheriff’s model is not working in Loudoun County, it’s not working.
