Leadership defined

Excerpt from the editorial in today's Sunday Register:

Sandusky County sheriff Kyle Overmyer, detective Sean O'Connell, coroner John Wukie, county prosecutor Thomas Stierwalt, Sandusky County special prosecutor and defense counsel Dean Henry and Sandusky County judges John Dewey and Barbara Ansted and court administrator Brock Kimmet all seem to have contributed to an apparent credibility gap surrounding the multiple investigations of the death of Jacob Limberios on March 2, 2012. 

That taint continues to this day like a stink that won't go away.  


But Erie County Sheriff Paul Sigsworth, chief deputy Jared Oliver and the Castalia Police Department displayed professionalism during the protest and exhumation of Jacob's body from the Castalia Cemetery on Wednesday, like a beacon in the midst of the muck of dysfunction Sandusky County officials created.


They represented the Erie County law enforcement community in a powerful way.   


Sigsworth successfully and compassionately managed the peace during the protest and the upsetting exhumation that followed, and the respect he so obviously felt for the family and the community was a fine moment of leadership, from a true leader.


You made us all proud, Sheriff.
