Today I am announcing that I will not seek another four-year term as Lafayette County Sheriff (or any other elective office) in the upcoming 2014 general election. I will serve the remainder of the current term which ends on January 5, 2015.
It has been an absolute honor and privilege to serve in this capacity the past 24 years. At the end of this current term I will have been a Wisconsin law enforcement official for 35 years, “With 25 of those years of service as the elected Lafayette County Sheriff.
I’m choosing to leave at a time when the office continues to run smoothly. We are having much success in the area of solving crimes and impacting our community in positive ways, all of which is a credit to a great team of deputy sheriffs and support staff who do so much each and every day for the citizens they serve.
I’m not unhappy about anything and my health is good. I simply believe it is time to turn this page of my life and move on to other things of interest. Once I’m out of office I will re-focus to spend more time with the love of my life - my wife Ronda, and my family and friends.
