I am pleased and honored to formally announce my candidacy for a fourth term as Porter County Sheriff. Throughout my 38 year career in law enforcement, I have been committed to the people of Porter County through trust, respect, and accountability with the opportunity to lead the Porter County Sheriff's Office. I invite you to read my full announcement below and humbly pledge my continued commitment to the people of Porter County. Thank you.
Today I was fortunate to get to speak to 1300 middle school students from Fegely and Kouts about the dangers of heroin. I was accompanied by Valpariso native Herb Stepherson author of Junkbox Diaries, who shared his inspiring personal account of overcoming addiction. Prevention is a key component to tackling the drug problem we are facing, and I am committed to engaging in tough conversations with our youth on the realities and implications of drug use.
