How I Drive Change

What I Stand For

With 35 years in law enforcement and leadership roles in two major police agencies, I understand the importance of stepping up to address our community's safety challenges. Maricopa County faces issues like migrant crime, fentanyl, and human trafficking, worsened by the dismantling of initiatives like the Arizona Border Strikeforce that I founded.

This has resulted in wasted resources and reduced effectiveness in combating these problems. Additionally, there are concerns about the support for our police forces, with actions by Phoenix Mayor Gallego leading to a weakened Phoenix Police Department, which could affect the quality of service due to a lack of support and trust.

As the fourth most populous county in the U.S., Maricopa County's safety is crucial. This election is vital for preventing the crime and economic issues seen in cities that reduced police funding and support. I am committed to maintaining the safety of our community and efficiently managing resources to ensure it.
about-image

A True Arizona Native

Born and raised in Phoenix, Maricopa County is my home. Ensuring public safety excellence isn't just a passion, its also part of my family's history.

2nd Generation Arizonan

Born and raised in Phoenix, I grew up in a family deeply connected to the community, with my father serving in the Phoenix Police Department before leading the Arizona Department of Public Safety. Alongside my two children, I've experienced the rich tapestry of life in Phoenix and look forward to contributing to our community again.

A Legacy in Public Safety

During my 35 year career in Law Enforcement, I've received the Torch of Liberty award from the Anti-Defamation League, the Medal of Heroism from the Rotary 100 Club, and the Medal of Valor and Medal of Life Saving from the Phoenix Police Department.

My Platform

My campaign focuses on building trust, ensuring accountability, and enhancing safety in Maricopa County. By adopting these principles, I aim to foster a more efficient and responsive Sheriff's office that meets everyone's needs. Together, let's work towards a safer, united Maricopa County for the future.

Additionally, we will extend our efforts to improve school security through expanded resource officer programs and providing training for school personnel on threat response. Strategies to combat organized retail theft will involve forming partnerships with local businesses and coordinating with law enforcement to effectively deter and address crime.

Furthermore, addressing the safety of voting sites is crucial. We will collaborate with election officials to enhance security measures and increase voter education. These priorities underscore our commitment to ensuring the safety and well-being of our communities.
