I have known Oscar Martinez for 12 years. As long as I have known him, he’s been in the St. John Girls Softball League and has been president for the last seven years.

I’ve watched him mentor over 500 girls, work with their parents, sit on the board and work tirelessly during the week and on weekends on behalf of our girls.

He’s responsible for creating a Quad-Town league that has brought communities together for our children, treating each child the same.

For years he has talked about what he wants to do with the sheriff’s department. His vision for a Junior Police Academy teaching an understanding of a career in public service/law enforcement are the building blocks Lake County can build a secure future on.

As a proven law enforcement professional, we need his commitment to our youths.

A vote for Oscar is a vote for the future of Lake County!
