I've been married for 15 years to my wife, Kim. We have three children, Shane, 9 years old; Dylan, 7 years old; and Brianna, 4 years old.
 
I have been involved in public service all my life. I am a combat veteran and served four years in the Army with the 82nd Airborne Division. I started my career in law enforcement approximately 20 years ago and have experience working in both a municipal police department as well as a sheriff's office.
 
We were able to reduce our operating expenses by over $650,000 in my first two years as your sheriff. As long as I'm your sheriff I can guarantee that we will always look at ways to enhance services and reduce spending. We have done a tremendous job in cutting costs, and we are truly doing more with less. I credit the men and women of both your sheriff's office and correctional facility for doing a wonderful job. I would not have accomplished what I have if it wasn't for their hard work and dedication.
