Fillmore County, Minn. - I would like to announce my candidacy for the Office of the Fillmore County Sheriff in 2014. As current Sheriff Daryl Jensen has previously stated, he will not be seeking re-election to another term. I believe with my education, training, and 19 years of experience and commitment to Fillmore County, I am the best candidate for the position. With this opportunity, I want the citizens of Fillmore County to know that I am ready and willing to fulfill the duties of the Office of the Sheriff.

I am a native of southeast Minnesota. I graduated from Stewartville High School in 1986. I have an Associate in Applied Science degree in Law Enforcement from the Alexandria Technical College and a Bachelor of Science degree in Law Enforcement from Mankato State University. In 2012 and 2013 respectively, I graduated from the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension’s Supervision and Management Program & Senior Management Program. Throughout my 19 years, I have had the opportunity to attend a wide variety of classes and trainings which have given me a diverse background in all areas of law enforcement.

While attending Mankato State University, I had the opportunity to work part-time as a police officer in the cities of Mapleton and Minnesota Lake. In December 1994, I started my career with Fillmore County as a deputy sheriff in Spring Valley. I have been in a leadership position for the last eight years. In 2005 I was promoted to Patrol Sergeant. My duties included supervision of the patrol division, scheduling, and training of new deputies. I was promoted to Lieutenant in 2013 and currently hold that position. My duties include animal neglect/cruelty investigation, civil process, background checks for gun permits, and sheriff’s office liaison to the Salvation Army. I also have the privilege of being the sheriff’s office firearms instructor and use-of-force instructor.

I am committed to providing the best possible services to the community through effective leadership and continuing to build a responsive and professional sheriff’s office. I currently live in rural Spring Valley with my wife, Amanda, and four children: Stephanie (15), Caitlin (12), Emily (10), and Cameron (7). Your support throughout the year and vote on November 4, 2014 would be greatly appreciated. For more information, comments, or questions, I can be contacted by phone (507-279-1976), email (miner4sheriff@gmail.com), or on Facebook (Miner4Sheriff).
