Heading 1

It has been an honor to serve the citizens of Cowlitz County the past 34 years as a Deputy and Sheriff. I have been assigned to duty as a patrol deputy, drug investigator, Patrol Sergeant, Detective Sergeant, Chief Criminal Deputy, and the past 3 years as the elected Sheriff. I have lived in Cowlitz County for 44 years and am a graduate of R.A. Long High School, LCC, and Portland State University with a degree in the Administration of Justice and Sociology. 


The public safety of the 112,000 residents of Cowlitz County and protection of their rights has, and will continue to be, my top priority. There have been many challenges in law enforcement the past few years. However, with your support, local law enforcement has been united in adapting and facing those challenges. The 64 employees and over 100 volunteers of the Sheriff’s Office are committed to preserving the quality of life we enjoy in Cowlitz County. 


 I respectfully ask for your vote to continue serving as your Sheriff and being a conscientious steward of your trust and the fiscal resources entrusted to me. To learn more about what WE have accomplished visit my website listed below.
