RIO GRANDE — George J. Hallett, Democratic candidate for sheriff in the November election, is a former White House Secret Service officer, not an agent, as reported here.
The error occurred in the editing process, and was not made by the candidate. It went unnoticed in a March 26 announcement of Hallett’s candidacy here.
In a letter to this newspaper Monday about that error, Hallett stated, “This is not uncommon, but there is a distinction between “agent” and “officer,” but it was still the White House Secret Service. I’ve always made the distinction.”
Hallett included both press releases previously sent in which he refers to himself as a Secret Service officer.
