Dear Editor:

My name is Mike Wells, and I served as sheriff for Jackson County from 1990-2006.

I have known Bart Buchanan for over 20 years. I can remember when I hired him in 1994. I knew Bart would be a good addition to my department.

I quickly promoted him to road deputy and, a year later, to investigator. While in investigations, he excelled. He investigated many cases.

He was assigned to work major crimes. The district attorney and the judges would compliment his work, how detailed his report writing was and how well he presented himself in court especially during major trials. He represented my department well.

Bart was one of the best deputy/investigators to ever work for me. He has the knowledge and ambition to be a great circuit clerk, and he has the desire to serve the people of Jackson County.

Join my family and I and let’s elect Bart Buchanan as the next Jackson County Circuit Clerk on Tuesday, June 5.

—Mike Wells
