Sheboygan County Sheriff
“Keeping Politics Out of Policing”
“Fair, ethical, and honest policing, empowering our employees and
partnering with the citizens for a safer community.”
Voters of Sheboygan County,
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you, and why I would like your vote on November 8th for Sheriff of Sheboygan County.
I was born and raised in Sheboygan, graduating from North High in 1993. Realizing I wanted to be a police officer for many years, I continued my education at Lakeshore Technical College. Graduating with an Associate Degree in 1997, I began my law enforcement journey as a part time officer for the Village of Kohler, later, becoming a Sheriff Deputy with the Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Office in 2001.
With the sheriff’s office I serve as member of the patrol division, a member of the department crash reconstruction team, and former investigator with the county wide multi-jurisdictional drug enforcement group from 2019 to 2021.
During my time with the department, I have been presented with a department commendation and three awards for excellence. I also work with businesses County wide to address the issue of business theft and shoplifting. I found my time as a drug investigator extremely rewarding as it allowed me to work with other agencies on the local, state, and federal level, resulting in the arrest and conviction of countless persons responsible for manufacturing, delivering, and distributing illegal drugs in and around Sheboygan County.
There are several reasons I have decided to run for the office of Sheriff.
First, I believe the Sheriff has lost his connection with the community. Sheboygan County’s citizens and its visitors is a diverse group, and offers vast information, knowledge, and ideas to offer so law enforcement can better serve those we are sworn to serve and protect. If elected Sheriff it would be my priority to reach out to our county’s population, building better relationships, to better serve our citizens.
Second, I feel certain department administration has lost touch with its employees. I want to encourage the employees, empowering them, and build the best public safety team. This will not only allow the sheriff’s office to better serve you, but help our agency with another problem we face, employee recruitment and retention. An employee who is supported is a happier employee.
Lastly, I have decided to run as an Independent. This decision was made because I do not believe that politics belong in policing. Providing service to Sheboygan County residents, as well as the staff of the Sheriff’s Office, no matter ones political view, is what needs to be done.
I thank you for your time and consideration. If you have questions or concerns I encourage you to reach out to me at: [email protected]
