AN OPEN LETTER TO THE VOTERS FROM SCOTT MESSERSMITH – SENIOR ASSISTANT STATE’S ATTORNEY

The following is an open letter to voters from Scott Messersmith, Senior Assistant State’s Attorney with the Wicomico County State’s Attorney’s Office:

MY NAME IS SCOTT MESSERSMITH, SENIOR ASSISTANT STATE’S ATTORNEY WITH THE WICOMICO COUNTY STATE’S ATTORNEY’S OFFICE. I HAVE PRACTICED LAW FOR ALMOST 22 YEARS AND WAS FORMERLY A U.S. NAVAL OFFICER. YOU DESERVE TO KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT THE PERSON ASKING YOU TO LISTEN TO HIS OPINION.

EARLY IN HER TENURE, STATE’S ATTORNEY JAMIE DYKES WAS CONFRONTED WITH A REPORT OF THEFT IN THE SALISBURY POLICE EVIDENCE ROOM. THAT INVESTIGATION REVEALED AN UNRELATED MATTER IN WHICH OFFICERS AND A PROSECUTOR, YEARS EARLIER, APPEARED TO HAVE MISHANDLED EVIDENCE AND DISCLOSURE.

MS. DYKES CONFRONTED THOSE ISSUES, AS HER OATH REQUIRED HER TO DO. THE DECISIONS SHE MADE WERE NOT EASY ONES FOR HER, BUT SHE MADE THEM BECAUSE SHE WAS ELECTED TO MAKE THEM.

RESENTMENT FROM THOSE AFFECTED BY THOSE DECISIONS DRIVES LEE BRITT’S CAMPAIGN. BRITT SUGGESTS MS. DYKES SHOULD HAVE LOOKED THE OTHER WAY, DISREGARDED HER OATH OF OFFICE AND THE LEGAL, ETHICAL, AND MORAL DUTIES THAT COME WITH THAT OFFICE.

I HUMBLY SUGGEST LEE BRITT IS NOT THE PERSON YOU WANT AS STATE’S ATTORNEY.

BRITT AND HIS SUPPORTERS HAVE REPEATEDLY MALIGNED JAMIE DYKES AND HER STAFF, THE VERY STAFF HE ASKS VOTERS TO ELECT HIM TO LEAD. WHEN CONFRONTED WITH INACCURACIES IN HIS ALLEGATIONS, BRITT TAP DANCES.

LEE BRITT IS NO FRIEND OF THE POLICE, AS ANYONE WHO HAS HEARD HIM IN COURT ACCUSE POLICE OFFICERS OF MISBEHAVIOR TO SUIT HIS OWN ENDS KNOWS. LEE BRITT IS AN OPPORTUNIST AND ILL-SUITED FOR OFFICE. PETTY VINDICTIVENESS, BITTERNESS, AND OPPORTUNISM ARMED WITH A BADGE IS A RECIPE FOR DISASTER.

I WILL NOT SERVE UNDER LEE BRITT AND THE ANGRY CABAL HE WILL EMPOWER IF ELECTED. I ENDORSE THE ONLY QUALIFIED CANDIDATE IN THIS RACE, MY BOSS, MY FRIEND, AND YOUR CURRENT STATE’S ATTORNEY, JAMIE DYKES.
