About Mike

Since graduating college and during a nearly 25-year career with a local business, I have committed thousands of hours of service to Jefferson County community organizations and efforts - including ten years as a Reserve Deputy with the Jefferson County Sheriff's office.  I am excited to launch my campaign to become your next Sheriff of Jefferson County, West Virginia.  In my business career as head of I.T. for a Jefferson County-founded business, I managed a global I.T. network serving multiple plants and offices, including the digital and physical security systems.

Jefferson County is a special place to me and I am thankful for the community I call home.  To become Sheriff means continuing my service to this community, providing safety to each of you, my neighbors, and being a steward of your hard-earned tax dollars.  The sheriff's office is more than a law enforcement agency.  It is the county agency responsible for the collection of property taxes and serves as the Treasurer of our county.  As an experienced business manager and organizational leader, I will bring a set of skills to the office that is important to effectively and efficiently manage taxpayer dollars while overseeing the important law enforcement functions.  

My wife and I and our many volunteers look forward to meeting you during the campaign.  I'm excited to learn more about what is important to you and how I could best serve you as your next Sheriff.
