From Mark:

 I have known Jim for over 25 years. I have had the opportunity to work with him throughout his career, both as a coworker and as a supervisor. Jim dedicated much of his career working with the community and public safety. He worked with children in our schools to include The D.A.R.E Program and other safety related training. Jim helped develop and implement The Active Shooter Program in our public schools, also implementing  various programs designed to inform and help the senior citizens in our community. I feel Jim will make a good Sheriff due to his commitment to public safety and his knowledge of the department. Jim is ready to preserve our rights and stand behind his word.
