Letter about Kaase for Sheriff...


Mon, Oct 20th, 2014
Posted in All Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

I am writing to recommend Tom Kaase as the next Fillmore County Sheriff. When I was the Sheriff of Fillmore County, I hired Tom as a Dispatcher/Jailer. When I left to become the Police Chief in the City of Lakeville, Sheriff Jim Connolly thought so much of Tom that he hired Tom as my replacement.

I have been the sheriff of three Minnesota counties (Fillmore, Dakota and Steele) and the Police Chief of two cities (Lakeville and Faribault). There is a genuine sense of unease in the state and the country about the safety of our children and us. Fillmore County is not immune from these fears.

Tom has worked as a Fillmore County deputy and has always lived in Fillmore County. However, it is his experience as a police officer, narcotics investigator, sergeant, and lieutenant with the Rochester Police Department that makes him the ideal person to be the next sheriff. Fillmore County is a low crime area and a safe county. However, and for whatever reason, there are always huge criminal cases to investigate in Fillmore County, ranging from murder, bank robbery, arson, and narcotic violations.

Both Sheriff Connolly and Sheriff Jensen worked for me and were superior detectives and investigators. I couldn’t be more proud of both of them. Tom has that same investigative experience that allows him to manage and investigate major cases.

I am pleased to endorse and recommend Tom Kaase once again for Fillmore County Sheriff.
