Why I'm Running

I was born and raised in Kent County. I've lived and worked here my entire life. I have dedicated 30 years of my life to law enforcement and will bring back transparency, accountability and professionalism to the office of Sheriff. It is more important than ever to end brutality and injustice and to bring about positive change and reform.
