Statement of Purpose

After nearly thirty years, I have had the remarkable opportunity of serving and protecting the citizens of Orange County under three separate elected Sheriffs. Those of you who have known me over the years have witnessed a man of integrity, honor, family, and an officer who leads from the front. As a life-long Hudson Valley resident I have volunteered throughout our communities for great causes such as the Newburgh Armory Unity Center, Honor Flight of the Hudson Valley, and most recently at several Points of Distribution Sites to help those who elected to receive the Covid-19 vaccine, to name a few.

Throughout my career I have received notable awards, recognitions, and citations on a local through federal level, including approval for Secret Clearance during a five-year assignment with the FBI Safe Streets Task Force. In my efforts to ensure I provide the most effective guidance to my agency, and utilize the best practices to serve our communities, I recently completed my master’s degree through the University of San Diego in Law Enforcement and Public Safety Supervision.

Last year, after 28 years of service, I retired from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office and transitioned to the Montgomery Police Department as Deputy Police Chief. This has allowed me to focus on reaching out to you to help me prepare for my own platform as the most qualified candidate in the Sheriff’s election next year. Supported by my loving wife and children, I have been preparing to be the best candidate through honesty, dedication, and tireless work throughout my entire career.

Thank you for your viewing my site. I look forward to working with every community as we support the ideals and values that make Orange County a safe place to raise our families.
