That people who value the constitution should be concerned about.
No 'law enforcement' activity can lawfully occur in your county without the sheriff being aware, or present directly, or through deputies. No federal operation can legally enacted without the cooperation of the county sheriff's office. Its a fact. The federal authorities have no arrest jurisdiction in the state of Michigan or any other 'sovereign' state without the assistance of local authorities, and in particular the highest local authority; the ELECTED sheriff.
What is important to remember when voting to fill this position, is whether he will be upholding the constitution, or collaborating with federal or rogue state agencies, which all too often seem to abridge constitutional protections as a matter of convenience.

The Benzie county sheriff Ted Schendel, received the Constitution Defender Award yesterday at the Benzie County Commission meeting drawing applause from the 50 or so present.
The award is given to 3 or 4 each year, with a 'Grand Defender' being chosen from those, and announced during the annual constitution celebration event in Acme MI. This year's event is Sept 15. The award reads:
"Has been recognized by the Constitution Celebration Committee and membership as a person of indefatigable character, who abides by the laws of our country, and defends with vigor, the principles of its founding by lawful means.Mr Schendel upheld his oath.
This video provides a pretty good explanation WHY this Sheriff was chosen.
We thank him.
And the Benzie Sheriff is not alone.
