Honor & Integrity


     I am pleased to announce my candidacy for the Yakima County Sheriff Office in 2018.  With 30 years of public safety experience, I have spent the last 12 years leading law enforcement agencies in Yakima County. 

    The Sheriff is the only elected law enforcement officer in the county.  I strongly believe that the Sheriff’s responsibility, as the elected “chief executive officer and conservator of the peace of the county,” is to serve the people!      I am excited about the opportunity to serve the citizens of Yakima County and I am asking for your support and your vote.

Thank you
