My Top 3 Priorities

  • Increasing staffing levels to improve and ensure public safety and quicker response times
  • Adding more school resource officers to keep our children safe
  • Addressing the Opioid, Marijuana and other drug issues.



Calaveras County has been my home for over 38 years. I chose a career at your Sheriff’s Office 15 years ago. I have worked various positions within the department including my current position as your Sheriff. I fully understand the needs of our community and the Sheriff’s Office.


As your Sheriff, I have worked hard to foster better programs and relationships with our schools, senior citizens, ranchers and our communities.

I know that to have safe communities and effective policing, it requires hard work and trust through commitment and community partnerships. 


Some departmental projects that I have expanded upon are drug enforcement, K9, bike, academy, inmate worker and resident deputy programs. I have been effective at adding additional deputies/correctional officers to the office to ensure crimes are responded to for a safer community. I have worked solely for this department to earn that trust from you.


As your Sheriff, I pledge to implement the values of integrity, accountability, and honesty. I am on your side.

I will be honored to continue as your Sheriff, I respectfully request your vote to continue to serve this community with the dedication I have for it.

Community First and Tough on Crime.
