A letter from your Sheriff

Fillmore County Sheriff

There are just a few days left before Election Day in Fillmore County. This has been an awkward time for me as I prepare for my retirement in the midst of an election for my job. As many of you may know, I was hired in Fillmore County over 35 years ago and have spent my entire career here working for the sheriff’s office. I’ve spent the last nine and a half years as your sheriff.

This will be your first open-seat sheriff’s election in recent history in Fillmore County. Sheriff Jim Connolly and I both ran unopposed in each of our elections going back over 25 years. The last contested sheriff’s election in Fillmore County was in 1986. On November 4, you have the opportunity to determine your next sheriff.

I decided early on that I was not going to ‘endorse’ a candidate in this election, and feel that it’s important to keep my word. I have chosen to not divide my office by endorsing one candidate and then walk out the door on January 4th. I have always felt that it’s important for the sheriff’s office to stay out of the politics of the election.

Many people have asked why I have not endorsed Brian Miner, since he works for me. Some have speculated that I have a problem with him. That is far from the truth. He has been a loyal and dependable employee and command staff supervisor for me my entire time as sheriff.

I have valued my open and transparent relationship with the county board. That is important for the next Fillmore County sheriff to have also. I have worked with Tom Kaase and the rest of the board, as we have dealt with difficult economic times. We have also made some major leaps with technology and equipment that I could not have done without that good working relationship.

I have had the opportunity to direct some wonderful employees here. This office is loaded with loyal, committed, and dependable people that work 24/7/365 to keep Fillmore County a great place to live, work, and raise a family. I cannot thank them enough.

I also want to take this opportunity to thank the citizens of Fillmore County for trusting in me to be your sheriff. It has been such a rewarding career here, mostly because of the all of the great people I have met and/or worked with. This job has provided a great foundation for my family and me. My wife, Deanna, son, Matthew (Michelle), daughter, Kala and .....
