Age 71
City/town Covington, Kentucky
Education/Degrees I am a graduate of Covington Catholic High School and Northern Kentucky University. I have twenty five years experience in the United States Army and National Guard including multiple tours in Vietnam, Cuba, South America, and Saudi Arabia. Prior to becoming jailer, I spent more than twenty-nine years as an employee of Cinergy, which is now Duke Energy.
Community Involvement I serve on many boards and dedicate many volunteer hours to make Northern Kentucky a better place to live and prosper. I work with the VA to help with incarcerated veterans, and I volunteer for our local homeless shelter and orphanage.
Campaign Message The Kenton County Jailer and Deputies strive to make the Jail a Community Institution, in which we exercise fiscal responsibility, reasonable conditions of confinement, service to the People, and an unwavering commitment to Public Safety.
I am running for Kenton County Jailer to continue the long and successful record of dedication and service to the people of Kenton County, Northern Kentucky, and the Commonwealth.
I have been an elected public servant in Kenton County for two decades as your Kenton County Jailer, and served in the U.S. Army and National Guard prior to my Law Enforcement career. My impervious dedication to public safety, fiscal responsibility, and community service is without question during my 20 years and 5 terms as Jailer. Additionally, my jail deputies and staff have gone above the call of duty by changing the way we view and respond to substance-use disorder and mental health issues within our correctional institutions. We have impacted countless individuals, families, and communities with our structured and disciplined vision and compassion for men and women in our custody. Our programs and commitment has been recognized locally, nationally, and internationally on CBS News, in the New York Times, and featured in Time Magazine.
