Vote Tom Kaase to protect our county


Mon, Oct 20th, 2014
Posted in Preston Commentary

By Angi Kaase

of Preston, Minn.

Tom Kaase has my vote to be the next Fillmore County Sheriff. Not only is Tom my brother-in-law, he also displays all of the characteristics I would want in someone to protect my family, my friends, the community I live in, and the rest of the county.

Tom has roots in Preston, MN where he was born, raised and started his career in law enforcement. Tom’s career began with 11 ½ years with the Fillmore County Sheriff’s Department. Tom was a dispatcher, jailer, Deputy, investigator, D.A.R.E. officer and Sergeant. Over time, Tom spread his wings and accepted a job with the Rochester Police Department to develop knowledge, training, experience, and to grow as an individual in his field. At the Rochester Police Department, Tom has added 18 more years to his career as a patrolman, community policing officer, investigator, a narcotics investigator assigned to the SE MN Drug Task Force, Sergeant, and now as a Lieutenant. Tom holds the third highest level of rank in the department, just under the Chief and Captains positions.

Tom hasn’t only lead by example in law enforcement but was an active School Board Member at Kingsland and has been a Fillmore County Commissioner for the past 6 years.

From Tom’s passion for the job both in Fillmore and Rochester he is now a professional law enforcement officer, trained in the latest law enforcement techniques and criminal justice procedures. Tom knows and brings to this position what is needed to be truly effective. He understands the integrity needed to do the job in a legal and responsible manner. Tom would do all he can to protect the lives and property of the citizens of Fillmore County.

When it comes time to cast your vote, I want you to think of the type of leader you want as the next Sheriff of Fillmore County. The human hand does not make leaders; instead, they are born with a character trait that can be developed through education, training, and hard work. Tom has this! You don’t inherit the quality to be a leader, delegate it, or have it handed to you. You can’t buy it or give it away. The essence of a leader is mixed and molded by physical and mental traits, intelligence level, aptitude and temperament. Tom is this leader and as our next Sheriff, Tom is someone that the public can trust and can count on to be this leader. Remember, law enforcement is a team effort. As our next Sheriff, Tom .....
