Your INDEPENDENT Candidate for Sheriff
Residents of Hennepin County,
Our communities have experienced a devastating last couple of years. We’ve seen dangerous rhetoric invade the mission of law enforcement that we need to keep our streets safe. And as Minneapolis burned last year, our Hennepin County Sheriff was nowhere to be found. No action. No plan. Not even an explanation.
That’s because he had a political party to cater to. Here’s the thing about law enforcement: it should not be political, it should not be compromised by partisan talking points, it should only be concerned about public safety.
Being a veteran police officer myself, I know what our cops go through on a day-to-day basis. Our cops should feel supported while we strive to improve our law enforcement function. And our communities should feel both respected and safe. It’s time to make public safety a priority once again for all of Hennepin County.
My priorities as sheriff will be to work with youth and community outreach programs, to show leadership in our communities to prevent crime, and to reform the mission of the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office. I believe we can both support law enforcement and reform it. Because this is not an either/or issue – it’s an and/both solution.
I will not seek the endorsement or blessing of any political party. Instead, I will work for YOU. My party is the people of Hennepin County, and restoring safety on our streets will be my only mission.
If you’re fed up like I am with politics dictating our law enforcement policies, I’m your candidate for Hennepin County Sheriff. Whether you usually vote Republican or Democrat, or if you usually don’t vote at all, I’m asking for your support. Let’s put politics aside and get back to public safety. I’m ready and prepared to lead as your independent sheriff!
