I think you may be asking about Mr. Lear.
James Curtis Lear, Sr.
746 E Jefferson
Howard, KS 67349
He's running on the republican ticket for Elk County Sheriff.
I spoke with him briefly on Monday at the commission meeting and met his wife & father. She is quite graceful & polite. His dad is very personable. Mr. Lear is articulate, clean cut & very professional in both dress & presentation. Don't quote me, but he appears to be in his 30's or early 40's at best (what do I know, I'm an antique). He's married with children, has military service experience & possibly private security or other law enforcement experience. Watching his demeanor during the meeting, he was quite attentive to the goings on. I believe he might have been a former Moline resident.
First impression: Very positive. I'd probably thank him for the speeding ticket.
I'm sure he would take your call and answer any detailed questions. I know I'll be calling to inquire for more background as well.
