Former Sheriff supports Johnson


I am Art Martinak, former Sheriff of Linn County, and I am supporting Kerry Johnson for Linn County commissioner.

A lot has changed since I was your Sheriff, but one thing has not. Linn County government is our local government and it affects our lives the most.

When I was Sheriff I hired local men and women to be deputy sheriffs. It paid off then and it is still paying off today. Many of those local deputies I hired are now in leadership positions of the Sheriff’s Office.

Kerry Johnson is local; she was born and raised in Linn County and it has always been her home.

During her life she has worked and volunteered in Linn County. She has been on the Linn County Fair board for 16 years and in that position she has supported the youth of our county through the 4H and FAA fair.

We don’t need someone with a history of working in Salem. We need a person with a history of working with people in Linn County.

Kerry Johnson is that person.
