I want to be your Sheriff

Since I was 15 years old, I've wanted to be the Stearns County Sheriff. Now, after 27 years protecting the people of Central Minnesota, I'm ready to take the next step. This past weekend I made it official, I'm running for Stearns County Sheriff.

I'm running for Sheriff because I love this community more than anything. I've spent most of my adult life making Stearns County a safe place to raise a family. But I'll be honest, we have serious public safety challenges that need to be addressed now.

  • Improving Children's Safety

  • Reducing Drug Abuse

  • Getting Violent Criminals Off Our Streets

  • Fighting Human Trafficking

As a lifelong resident of Stearns County, I understand the importance of strong relationships of mutual trust between law enforcement agencies and the people they serve. We have to work together to make our community a safer place.

I'm ready to roll up my sleeves and get to work, but I can't do it without you. Can I count on your support?

We have a tough fight ahead, but I'm confident that with supporters like you, our campaign will be victorious. We can work together to keep our kids safer, to reduce the amount of drugs and violent criminals in Stearns County, and to fight human trafficking.

I pledge to you, that as your Sheriff, I will always have an open door policy with the public. I will always be willing to take a phone call, or to answer an email. I understand that law enforcement agencies need to hear feedback from the public, and I look forward to traveling across Stearns County in the coming months to speak with citizens about how we can make our community safer!

Times are changing, and to keep our community safe from criminals we must adapt to meet the public safety challenges that face our community. I'm confident that my 27 years of well-rounded experience in law enforcement have provided me with the knowledge, and the vision, to increase public safety, and to improve the Stearns County Sheriff's Office.

I look forward to seeing you on the campaign trail!


P.S. The Sheriff's election will be an important one for our future. Our campaign is powered by grassroots contributions from hardworking Minnesotans like you. Can you contribute $ 100, 50, 0r 25 to help us reach our announcement fundraising goal?

Thank you for your support!
