We the voters of Clayton County and those who seek fairness and justice for its citizens, are sending this letter of concern on behalf of all Clayton County residents and families.

Our concerns are the following:

We believe all elected officials should have the right to hold office and represent their people within the law without the impending threat of expulsion by other members of office.

We believe all citizens should be given a fair opportunity to make choices for the betterment of their lives, family and community without political interference. 

So, we are writing this letter in support of Sheriff Victor Hill—Clayton County’s duly elected sheriff who has enjoyed a long, exceptional record of public service involving innumerable significant civic issues. While serving in office, he has gained the trust and the confidence of this community through community policing and a zero tolerance for crime.   Our Sheriff has vigilantly fought against crime and has sworn to protect those than cannot protect themselves. We the voters of Clayton County, demand that Sheriff Hill remains in office.  Sheriff Hill has unquestionably been a true visionary for innovative change both in and out of Clayton County and we are lucky to have him.

Recent allegations involving the Sheriff cannot be used to overshadow or under value his success as our Sheriff.  The law says that he is presumed to be innocent until proven guilty. 

We the people of Clayton County, believe the circumstances under which Sheriff Hill has been suspended do not rise to the extreme level of his suspension from elected office. It is up to the voters of Clayton County to decide whether or not the Sheriff deserves their trust and confidence.

Sheriff Hill took office by a public vote of the people, not by appointment. That means any consideration of his removal would have to meet a much higher standard if it were to reverse the will of the Clayton County voters who elected him to office. Under the circumstances, we do not believe the allegations against the Sheriff rises to that standard where a vote of the people should be altogether overruled. Again, it is up to the voters of Clayton County to decide with whom to put their confidence as sheriff.

We, as members of the community, civil servants, parents, voters of the Clayton County and concerned citizens, are signing this letter in support of Victor Hill’s reinstatement as county sheriff—the position to which he was elected by the people.
