Letter to the Editor: Writer Offers Support for Rick Hubbard

web posted June 6, 2016

Dear Editor,

By way of introduction, I grew up in Edgefield and retired as an Assistant Director with SLED while serving in the National Guard units in or supporting all of the counties in the 11th Circuit. I have known Rick Hubbard for over 20 years and I have watched his skills and career grow over those years. Rick has developed into a great prosecutor and a great administrator at the solicitorís office.

Rick was selected to fill the Senior Deputy Attorney Generalís position last year and was in training to move into that position in June, until the office for solicitor became available and he resigned to run for office. Prosecution and the administration of justice is Rickís passion. He works as hard to clear anyone wrongfully accused as he does those who are guilty.

Rick is by far the most experienced person in the race having prosecuted every type case from misdemeanor to capital murder cases involving multiple defendants. He is well respected by defense attorneys, law enforcement, victims, and the prosecutorial and administrative staff at the solicitorís office. All sheriffs in the circuit also support Rick.

Please join me in supporting Rick Hubbard for 11th Circuit Solicitor June 14, 2016. Remember, there is no Democratic opposition in November, so this is a most important election for Lexington, Edgefield, Saluda, and McCormick Counties and we need everyoneís support and vote.

Thank you,
Steven A. Smith
Columbia, South Carolina
