County Sheriff's Office
It has been an honor to serve Chisago County for the last four years as the County Sheriff. I am seeking re-election and I'm excited about the opportunity to serve another term. I have over twenty-five years of law enforcement experience serving the Chisago County community. The last twenty-three years, I have been serving with the Chisago County Sheriff’s Office, where I have held numerous positions and ranks.
I have eighteen years of experience in administrative positions within the Chisago County Sheriff’s Office. During this time, I’ve shown proven leadership in accomplishing large, complicated projects, including being the project coordinator for the design and building committee for the Emergency Communications Center and the new Public Safety Center.
I also bring eighteen years of past proven budget experience within Chisago County. This experience comes from being the Jail Administrator, where I oversaw the budgets of the emergency communications center and the jail. As the Chief Deputy, I assisted with the budgets of all the divisions of the Sheriff’s Office. Over the last four years serving as Sheriff, my administration and I have proven to be fiscally responsible.
As your Sheriff, my priorities are: to create safer roads through traffic enforcement and education; ensure school safety and security; promote drug awareness, education, and enforcement, which are critical. I will also ensure there is a consistent partnership with organizations in our community that seek to understand and build actionable plans to provide mental health support to the general public, first responders, and our inmates.
I am married to my wife Kelly of 23 years, with two children Grace, 20, and Drake, 17 years old. We’ve lived in Chisago County since 1999 when I was hired by the Sheriff’s Office. I enjoy outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing, biking, and running. Besides playing adult hockey, I also enjoy being a youth hockey coach and hockey referee.
The Sheriff’s Office needs the help of the citizens as much as they need the help of the Sheriff’s Office. That’s why community involvement and transparency are so vital. As Sheriff, I will continue to operate with transparency and continue to be actively involved in our communities.
Chisago County is such an incredible area and I look forward to continuing to serve as your Sheriff. I humbly ask for your support and vote in November.
