Explain why you are running for this position.
I am the only candidate that has served in the U.S. Military, works as a police officer, and has worked as a deputy sheriff in the chester county sheriff's office. I truly fell that I will bring a unique and qualified perspective to this office. I have always loved serving the public. While serving in the Iraq War, I was shot during an enemy ambush in 2005, which led to me losing my right leg. I wanted to continue to serve the public. I put myself through EMT School and Paramedic School to help those in need of emergency medical care. I still wanted to pursue my dream of working in law enforcement and was admitted to DCCC Police Academy and became the first amputee to graduate from their academy. I graduated as the "overall top cadet" and "top marksman". I continue to work as a police officer and paramedic currently. I feel that my experiences have guided me toward this campaign. I want to continue to serve the public and bring a fresh direction to the Office. I believe that our county deserves better than the current administration. I believe that I am the right man at the right time for this position. Chester County resident's will ALWAYS come first under my leadership.
If you are elected, on which top 3 issues would you concentrate?
I have been very direct on the three issues that I would address if elected to the office. The first issue is "financial transparency". I believe that any fundraising or donations raised for any part of the office should be handled by a over site committee that are comprised of individuals outside of the sheriff's office. The committee can decide where and when any money raised can be utilized and it will be a matter of public record. This can avoid any future problems within the administration. Secondly, I want to unify the office with surrounding municipal police agencies. If we can work together in the law enforcement community, we can achieve a much safer community. I would allow deputies to join county wide units (SWAT and counter drug) to assist smaller departments, and allow deputies to better serve the community. I would place an emphasis on allowing deputy sheriff's to assist any/all law enforcement agencies throughout the county. My final issue, which is perhaps most important to me, is community service. The sheriff's office is one of the largest law enforcement agencies in the county and should be dedicating more time in our schools. I will place a very high priority placing available deputies in each and every county school to address the dangers of drug use, bullying and gun safety. We have the man-power to allow this type of community service. I would also have deputies (certified) to perform threat assessments on any scho
Why are you the best candidate for this position?
I am one of two candidates that has been a life-long Democrat. I have experience in every field of emergency service in this county and around the world. I have worked in the Sheriff's Office for four years and can intimately describe many areas of needed improvement. I have the right amount of youth and experience to make the necessary changes within the office. If elected, I will also hold monthly meetings with the public to answer any questions they may have about the Chester County Sheriff's Office. This will open the door to a transparent and trustworthy office. I have also spoken with many deputies who have served along side of me and have told me that they support and trust the type of man I am. This should not be an election based on money or friendships. This election should be based on honor, experience and trust. I am the candidate that has persevered through the battlefields of Iraq, served my community as a police officer, and will bring the same integrity to this office that I instill in my own children.
What do you say to your potential constituents to make you stand out from everyone else? (Something like: I play the banjo while standing on my head or I juggle or anything that truly makes you unique)
I have been a baseball coach in west bradford for the past five years. I also took two years of ballroom dancing in 7th and 8th grade.
Will you support the eventual nominnee of your party?
I will support the nominee that is chosen by the Chester County citizens.
