Why should voters elect you?
"Introduce 21st-century technology, enchance professional relationships within the law enforcement community and improve morale within the office. I will be an active full-time sheriff."
What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?
"Addressing the growing problem of domestic violence within our community must be a priority at the Sheriff's Office. Legislation must be created for the Howard County sheriff to mirror the action of the Prince George's sheriff by responding to actual domestic-violence incidents, rendering aid, on-site arrest of the suspect and enforcement of the family and domestic violence laws.The Sheriff's Office must have immediate oversight to protect the victim/family and ensure that the suspect is removed from the home and brought before the court for the protection of all domestic-violence victims. Follow-up investigation is imperative for all parties."
