****Write-In Yvonne Gittelson for Hampshire County Sheriff Nov. 8th****

Dear Friends and Supporters, Please note these Write-In requirements:

  • In the blank space provided for write-in votes under “Sheriff”, please write: “Yvonne Gittelson, 47 Main St. Goshen”
  • Misspellings and address omissions are not disqualifying--town clerks look for the "intent of the voter".
  • All Hampshire Co. clerks have been informed of my candidacy and are ready to accept write-in votes for me.
  • Because write-in stickers have been proven hard to process (eg they jam some machines), we ask voters to simply write in “Yvonne" per above. We will have stickers available at targeted polls, but will mostly rely on hand written votes. Thank you!

“There’s a new sheriff in town.”

We don’t hear those words often enough these days.

And not just because most of us don’t live in the Wild West, but because, once elected, a sheriff is rarely turned from office by voters. That’s a serious problem, especially when the sheriff in question fancies himself the hero of some cowboy movie, as too many of them do.
