Thank you for visiting my website! I’m a Republican running for Sheriff in Frederick County, Maryland. I’m a veteran of the U.S. Air Force; a retired Deputy Chief of Police from the Frederick Police Department; was elected to the Frederick County Republican Central Committee in 2008; and have been a licensed Realtor for over 25 years. Since retiring from the Frederick Police Department in January 2013, I completed my orientation as a volunteer driver with the Veterans Administration, allowing me to transport Veterans to the Martinsburg VA Hospital; completed my Associate of Arts degree from the Frederick Community College and am the volunteer announcer at my sons’ sporting events. My, wife, Tracy, is a lifelong resident of Frederick County and a graduate of Thomas Johnson High School. Two of our sons are attending Frederick County Public Schools, while our oldest is a graduate of Tuscarora HS and a freshman at York College of PA. We are also fortunate to have my parents, brother and his family, in-laws, and sister in-law’s family, all living in Frederick County.
As far back as I can remember, my goal was to become a Police Officer. It wasn’t about carrying a weapon, or having authority. I’ve always hated to see people take advantage of others; to see those who can’t or won’t stand up for themselves, be mistreated. It may sound like a cliché, but I wanted to become a Police Officer to help others, and to make a difference in the community where my family lives. I believe, after 28 years in the profession, that there is still a lot of work to be done and differences to be made. Everyone deserves to keep what’s yours, be treated with respect, know what’s happening in your community, and feel connected to your Sheriff’s Department. With your vote, we can make great things happen in Frederick County.
