I am running for the office of
Sheriff of Logan County and seeking the Republican nomination. Not
only has my family resided in Logan County for generations, they
have served this community in many capacities, making long-lasting
impact. I am proud to carry on the family tradition of serving our
local home, and also our country. It is with honor and pride that I

school as an Air Defense Missileman at the age of 17. During my time

of CID, I learned the necessary skills to conduct criminal
investigations including those involving fraud, narcotics, sexual
assault, and murder. After eight years in the Army, I pursued a
career in civilian law enforcement. Back home in Lincoln, I worked
for the Department of Corrections at the Pontiac Correctional Center
for a year before becoming a police officer in Atlanta and then a
deputy with the Sherriff’s Office. During this time, I married my
wife, Candra and we were blessed with 4 children, a daughter and 3
I have been with the Sherriff’s Office for 16 years. I have

burglary to homicide, and running the day to day operations of the
Logan County Sheriff’s Office.
Through leadership, integrity,

achieve the highest level of community safety, combating
criminal activity. We will realize this goal through innovation,
technology and collaborative partnerships with our local
governments, police agencies and citizens. Specifically, my
commitment to the Sheriff’s Office is a focus on crime, safety
