I am the only candidate for sheriff with 20 years law enforcement experience specifically with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office. I retired from the JCSO at the rank of Lieutenant, which also gave me 8 years of administrative and budgetary experience. I know the JCSO, the personnel and what it needs. Along with my law enforcement experience I also have 30 years of military experience. I am a proven leader in both the military and law enforcement and I am the right man to LEAD the JCSO.
Leadership experience and understanding what a deputy goes through. I have “walked in their shoes”, while still being responsive to the community and its needs. To stand behind the men and women of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office regardless of the division (Law Enforcement, Tax, Animal Control) they work in.
There must be action taken to address the growing drug and heroin problem in Jefferson County. It is my plan to establish a coalition with the Sheriffs of the adjoining states and counties to develop a course of action to stem the tide of drugs coming into Jefferson County and into their counties.
I am a proud 20+ year resident of Jefferson County.
I am married to my best friend Jenny, who was rasied in Jefferson County. Together we have 3 children and 6 grand-chlidren.
