WHY I'M RUNNING
Experienced, Proven Track Record, Progressive
I have over 31 years of law enforcement experience, including 20+ years of supervisory and management experience, seven years as second in command of the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office, and now seven months as Sheriff. Throughout my career, I have helped our agency navigate through the challenges of recessions, the COVID-19 pandemic, strategic planning, and implementing criminal justice reform. I have also worked to build strong relationships with our citizens, neighborhood groups, other local law enforcement agencies, and community partners to provide the best possible services for our citizens.
My goal as your sheriff is to continue leading the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office towards the highest standards of law enforcement and advocating for needed resources in our community. I am dedicated to the citizens of Kitsap County, and the employees and volunteers of the Sheriff’s Office who help keep our community safe.
Kitsap County has been my home for more than three decades. I have a proven track record of leading during times of growth, reductions, and crisis. With your support I hope to continue holding the Sheriff’s Office to the highest standard of service, while advocating for a future of Kitsap County that we all can share and enjoy.
