Democratic candidate for Sheriff, Kane County
Responses to our questions
Compare and contrast: Why should voters nominate you and not your opponent(s)?Your campaign materials explain your general qualifications for office, so you needn't repeat that information. We're instead asking you to help us do what voters must do — choose one candidate from the field available to them.
In my over twenty years of police experience, I have always sought new and innovative approaches to address immediate and forecasted public safety concerns. In the late 2000's, I developed and implemented tactics that helped the Kane County Sheriff's Office go from seizing just grams of dangerous heroin and cocaine from our streets to seizing hundreds of pounds of it, annually. I then began working on employment programs to connect citizens with past-offense records to local jobs. I view this gap as our leading cause of recidivism.
I have a platform to improve low income community relations with police through support services like job fairs and food pantry networking brought directly to the neighborhoods. I have a concept for implementation of a Heroin Hotline to help us identify, treat, and redirect our opioid addicted population.
I will re-establish lawful and effective programs to detect the influx of bulk drug trafficking and stand up to drug trafficking organizations and their attorneys who wish to attack them. This will have a powerful impact on local gun violence, as well, along with firearms owner compliance checks and new concealed carry training programs. Finally, I will bring back a cyber-crimes/child sex trafficking specialist, as predators use the internet at a higher rate than ever to prey upon our youth. We can no longer continue with business as usual in public safety. I am a Sheriff's candidate with a proven track record of successful program implementation and detailed plans to address serious concerns in our community.
