I STAND FOR:
FAMILY & VALUES
Living in Laramie County my entire life, I believe in strong family values and recently celebrated my 33rd year anniversary with my wife, Sue. We have been blessed with two children, Jake and Jenna and five grandchildren, Haley, Ella, Adam, Marcus and Sawyer as well as a daughter-in-law, Briana and a son-in-law, Thomas. I am actively involved in Kiwanis, and have been a board member of Kiwanis, Special Friends, Safe Harbor Children’s Advocacy Center and attend Meadowbrooke Church where I served a 4-year term as Church Elder. I am a conservative Republican who believes in limited government, the Constitution, second amendment rights, private property rights, and religious freedom.
BETTER SOLUTIONS FOR IMPACT OF MENTAL HEALTH IN THE COUNTY
As the only candidate with current, relevant experience in leading law enforcement and corrections that spans 26 years in Laramie County, I understand the issues facing our community regarding the mental health population. I have experience working with various judicial partners to create meaningful solutions to move those with mental illness through the judicial process faster, provide better care for them during incarceration, and understand the importance of coordinating with community partners to aid reintegration into the community long term.
BETTER WAGES / INCREASED STAFFING TO PROTECT & SERVE
I will strive to work with the County Commissioners to resolve ongoing salary issues at the Sheriff’s Department, within the constraints of the available Laramie County budget. Retainment of highly-qualified, experienced staff is critical to protecting and serving our community and we need to strive to stay competitive with other agencies.
LEADING BY EXAMPLE
I believe an effective leader must lead by example. I have spent my 26-year career learning all operation aspects of the Sheriff’s Department, honing my leadership skills with the goal in mind of being elected as Sheriff of Laramie County. If elected, I pledge to apply what I have learned and experienced as a public servant for the good of all Laramie County residents. I believe in the United States Constitution and the Constitution of the State of Wyoming and I pledge to ensure that all rights guaranteed to the citizens of this county to include their 2nd amendment rights to keep and bear arms will be protected.
REPRESENTING ALL CITIZENS IN THE COUNTY
I will diligently represent every community that lies within Laramie County’s 2600-mile radius, including rural areas where I spent seven years as the Patrol Sergeant. I am uniquely positioned to address the law enforcement challenges faced by all Laramie County residents, and if elected will dedicate myself to doing just that.
