At his April 13 campaign event near Leesburg, Mike Chapman, candidate for the Republican nomination for Loudoun County Sheriff in the November, 2011 elections, said that part of his leadership philosophy is “never ask anyone to do anything you wouldn’t be willing to do yourself.”

More than 70 local residents, including several elected officials and Republican candidates for office, attended through the course of the 2 1/2 hour fundraising event.

Guest speaker Asa Hutchinson, a former Congressman and DEA Administrator, said that he personally witnessed Mr. Chapman’s work “in the crucible, and I can’t imagine anyone could exceed his experience in law enforcement.”

Mr. Chapman said “In 32 years I have enforced statutes at all levels, from local to federal.”

As the only one of the three Republican Sheriff candidates who has worked in law enforcement during the past decade, Mr. Chapman stated that the changes of the past ten years – with increases in terrorism, drugs, gang activity and other crimes – require a Sheriff knowledgeable in the latest law enforcement methods and technology.
