Residents of Macon County,
May I take this opportunity to strongly endorse Bob Cook for Sheriff for Macon County. I make this endorsement based upon my personal and professional relationships with Bob Cook and my knowledge of his honesty, devotion to law enforcement, fair approach to all, and the broad scope of life experience which reflects his strength of character.
Additionally, Bob Cook’s specific law enforcement resume will serve the residents of Macon County well.
I first became acquainted with Bob Cook in 2007 while he was a narcotics detective with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office and I was a Special Agent with the Drug Enforcement Administration. For many years Bob Cook investigated and interrupted the flow of Illicit drugs into Jacksonville, Florida. Specifically, Bob Cook conducted numerous complex financial investigations resulting in the seizure of large amounts of United States currency. Bob Cook was truly the best Investigator I served with.
I observed Bob Cook deal with victims and defendants with care and sensitivity while affording them the respect required of the office. I observed Bob Cook maintain his independent decision making despite pressure from victims, police or political interests related to criminal episodes.
In short, Bob Cook fulfilled the obligations of his position without bias based upon his extensive knowledge of the law and procedure. He made case decisions based upon merit and not emotion.
Bob Cook demonstrates strong character and ethics in every aspect of his life. I consider it a privilege to be affiliated with Bob Cook and provide this endorsement for his election to the office of Sheriff for Macon County.
Thank you for your consideration,
Retired Special Agent
Drug Enforcement Administration
