Public Safety
All the conversations about bridges and roads, agriculture and energy, finance and transparency are a moot point unless we begin with a conversation about public safety. It is the most basic role of government – citizens must feel and be safe in their persons and property to truly pursue happiness.

Weld County’s geographic size combined with the rural nature of much of our jurisdiction provides for unique public safety challenges. The Weld County Sheriff’s Office is tasked with both patrols of a jurisdiction that covers nearly 4,000 square miles and detention in a jail facility capable of holding up to 850 inmates. I believe Sheriff Reams and his staff do a superior job.

My confidence in these law enforcement professionals is unequivocal and I believe that their reasonable requests should be fully funded.
