For Elrod

Editor, The News-Gazette:

I am the victim witness director for the city of Buena Vista, a job I have had the privilege of doing for more than nine years. As the victim witness director, I work closely with the commonwealth’s attorney to ensure that all victims, of any type of crime, have their voices heard.

I have been working with Josh Elrod since he took over the BVCA’s office on July 1. I can say, without a doubt, that Josh has our victims’ best interest at heart. Josh has spent many hours meeting with victims explaining the court process, all while listening to their input regarding their case. I have also seen Josh working in the courtroom. He is always well-prepared and he prosecutes with integrity and treats all people fairly and without prejudice.

Josh also attended the Virginia Crimes Against Children Conference where he received training on child specific victims. He is taking his position seriously and is doing a tremendous job.

For these reasons I am asking that you vote Elrod on Nov. 5! He is the right person to continue defending victims’ rights in Buena Vista.
