Another endorsement for Mark Howie


September 13, 2018

To The Eagle:

I would like to start by publicly endorsing Sheriff Mark Howie. Mark has been a dear friend of mine for the past 10 years. Throughout that period, he witnessed my family and I go through the best and worst of times. Words cannot truly convey my gratitude for Mark and his willingness to lend a helping hand whenever it is needed.

I spent numerous years as the wife of a Wahkiakum County officer. I can tell you from my experience, I gained a greater appreciation of the daily sacrifice given by the men and women of law enforcement. During Mark’s 28 years of service, I can only imagine what he has seen and what he has dealt with firsthand. The compassion Mark shows in his day-to-day life can be attributed in part to that.

Mark not only runs an efficient, financially sound, and reliable office, he has taken it upon himself to go above and beyond. An emphasis on health and wellness, both mentally and physically, has been put into action within the department. He has increased chaplain coverage throughout the county and has implemented additional safety resources for both the public and his officers. These few examples are only a portion of what this great sheriff has done. Each officer who puts that uniform on at the beginning of his or her shift has no idea of what they are going to encounter that day. By having a strong, positive leader, it takes the weight off just a bit. Mark’s drive to better his department directly affects his staff, which in return benefits the community.

I could continue to list off all of Mark’s achievements. His professionalism is second to none. His successful career virtually speaks for itself. However, all these qualities are only half of what makes Mark Howie the right man for the job. He is dedicated to his career, his community, and his fellow officers. Anyone can gain notoriety or earn awards, Mark has a truly great heart and in this day and age, that’s something to be commended.

I ask that you take a moment and consider casting your for vote for Mark C. Howie, a man who is dedicated to being the best he can be. I thank Mark for his service, his integrity, and his friendship.
