That’s my boy -- Kaase for Sheriff

of Preston, Minn.

Watching Tom grow up, I have always been very proud of my son like any father would be. However, I saw something in Tom at a young age that always struck me as unique. I admired his passion to help others. He was always that kid that would help out anywhere; at school, home, the neighborhood, he even took a job at Dahl’s IGA in Preston at a young age. Tom would get up and stock shelves by 5 am, come home, shower, go to school, and head back to Dahls after school and later become the manager. He just had this thing about him to do what was right and help someone out.

Tom picked the right career for a young man with his passion of always going above and beyond for people. And, in 1984 Tom began his career in law enforcement as a dispatcher/jailer for the Fillmore County Sheriff’s Office. After spending several years working his way up the department he decided to get even more experience and was hired on with the Rochester Police Department.

Through all of Tom’s success in his career, he always maintained his love for home here in Fillmore County. He and his wife Dorle of 30 years have lived and raised their own family here. Tom was a member of the Kingsland School Board and has served 6 years as a Fillmore County Commissioner. I’ll never forget his answer when I asked him why he was running for Fillmore County Commissioner; Tom’s response was “Dad, there are some things that need to be done and I’m going to see to it that it gets done.” That isn’t a lie folks, Tom has done this and so much more.

Tom has made his mother and I so proud over the years with his professionalism, fairness, and customer service. I know my son is the man for the job. I know that his morals, values, training, and experience are what it takes to be the next Sheriff of Fillmore County. On November 4th, remember as you are voting that Tom Kaase will do all he can for you, your family, your kids and your grandkids. Tom grew up in this little town of Preston, Minnesota, but he has a heart and passion for this area like none other.
