Reader opinion: Klang has real leadership – Brainerd Dispatch

I am a retired correctional officer from the Crow Wing County Jail. Staffing and turnover were dramatic, even though Goddard wanted to tell the public otherwise. The lack of real leadership under Goddard has put many of the staff “down and out”. My mental health was affected and I retired early. Goddard’s leaflet talks about K9 Lincoln as a “facility dog” and about his employee welfare plan. I asked Goddard to bring K-9 Lincoln to improve my morale and mental health. I was told Lincoln was not for our staff. Goddard doesn’t care about the mental health of his employees and his actions and decisions over the past four years prove it. I support Klang for his genuine leadership, genuine empathy for employees and the public. Knowing when Klang is elected will restore positivity to the sheriff’s office. Vote for Klang Nov 8.
