Welcome to the website! I am so excited to run to be your next Anne Arundel County Sheriff, and bring Modern, Trusted, Law Enforcement back to Office of Sheriff!

It's time for a change, and I am eager for the opportunity to be a Sheriff Anne Arundel County can be proud of in 2018. I have a vision to bring renewed energy, integrity, and leadership to the Sheriff’s Office through innovation, and the experiences of my 26 year law enforcement career. As an active commander in the Anne Arundel County Police Department, I will deliver a unique perspective and wide range of experience to the Sheriff’s Office.

For many years, limited vision and direction have left the Sheriff's Office in need of a leader who can bring about positive change and return the office to the status of a modern agency. Currently, there is a backlog of over 12,000 unserved warrants, outdated safety and security practices, and serious issues with internal controls and accountability. As your Sheriff, I will put in place the best practices to correct these issues. 

I am a life-long Anne Arundel County resident, life-long county Republican, father, and husband of 31 years who will be tough on criminals, ensuring our most violent criminals are aggressively targeted and taken off the streets. We will reduce the outstanding backlog of warrants in Anne Arundel County which is currently, per capita, the second highest of all Maryland counties. Finally, I will put in place much needed changes in security procedures, and program management, to correct a long list of accountability issues discovered through county audits.

I have lived throughout the county in Brooklyn Park, Severn, Pasadena, Millersville, and Tracys Landing. I’ve been married for over 30 years to my high-school sweetheart and we have three wonderful adult children. I have committed to serve my community as a police officer, concerned parent, high school coach, and community volunteer.

I hope you will join my campaign and bring new vision and real change to the Office of Anne Arundel County Sheriff.
