I am proud to number these elected officials, law enforcement professionals and fellow Sonoma County residents as supporters who recognize that I am the candidate who has the experience and background necessary – not only in law enforcement management but detention as well – to lead the Sheriff’s Office.

With more than 20 years’ experience, and with a unique personal understanding of the impact of law enforcement on the community, I feel distinctly qualified to lead the effort of balancing realistic law enforcement reform with the absolute number one job of the Sheriff: keeping our County safe.”
