I am qualified for Sheriff, first because never has my generation and community faced me straight up and down with charges of improprieties, moral, spiritual, or otherwise as their rule and guide for their practices of impartiality in dispensing the laws of GOD and man, local, state, and national, in this my life and I believe they never will.

I believe I am qualified for this job because I have yet to take a fellow human being's life and I hope I will not ever be compelled to though I stand ready to do my duty, so help me GOD.

I am qualified and can do the job of Sheriff, second because after all of SATAN'S agents attacks and their posturing, torture, looting, unprecedented malice forethought and ill-will, GOD has spoken, HE has said that he has prepared me for the job and not only I can do it, but I will do it, and let the Church, and community say, Amen!

Formal Military Police training, from which I retired,Captain U.S. Army.

3 Main Campaign Points:

Safe environment to live in, night or day for work or recreation.

The eternal question is, "who is he that will harm you if you be followers of that which is good?" I, Rev. Aldrich D. Johnson, Sr., candidate for Sheriff, will set the highest standard of good, possible for man, and I ask you to help hold me to it.

Too many people, far too many are as children having rose up to play. You do not have to teach children to do bad, but you do have to teach them to do good. I have a Double Masters Degree, and am a Master Teacher. I know about doing and being good, because GOD is good. I have been teaching for years, as GOD'S representative, now let us help more people, today, right now, elect, Rev. Aldrich D. Johnson, Sr., for - Sheriff!
