Leadership in a positive direction

To the editor:

First, I want to express that it has truly been an honor to have served the citizens of Douglas County for the past 20 years.

I decided to run for sheriff because I am committed to the citizens of Douglas County and the sheriff’s office. For the last nine of those years, I served as the commander of the West Central Minnesota Narcotics Task Force and currently, a sergeant on road patrol.

As commander, I was responsible for the day-to-day operations of the task force, which included the supervision of specially trained officers throughout West Central Minnesota, budget management, securing grants that funded the task force, financial management for the future of the task force, records management and the organization of complex investigations. I rebuilt the task force, which was in jeopardy of disbanding, and made it one of the best in the state of Minnesota.

I want to apply that proven leadership and experience to the sheriff’s office for the citizens of Douglas County.

I appreciate your vote on August 12th. Thank you.
