Why Vote for Slade?
He’s a proactive leader who cares deeply about our whole community and has the experience to get the job done.
He’s a sixth generation Jackson resident who served Teton County as a deputy sheriff for 19 years. He worked his way up through the ranks, holding or supervising nearly every position in the agency and held the rank of Captain and Lieutenant for the last seven years of service.
We’re all on the same team and together we can make our community more resilient, safer and better prepared for what the future may bring. Being an Independent helps Slade serve everyone.
The Sheriff’s office needs to be more proactive and less reactive. Pre-planning and training for critical incidents and natural disasters will allow us to be ready and equipped to respond rapidly.
The institutional knowledge I gained after 19 years at the Sheriff’s office, including leadership positions in almost every area of operation, helps me to truly understand the complexities of the organization.
I have always found Slade easy to work with, directly involved with his staff and closely connected to his community. He and I are aligned in the way we think when it comes to the visibility of law enforcement. People want to see the Sheriff out in the community and accessible. Slade is hands on in his approach, like me.
Slade has what it takes to be an excellent sheriff. He has great experience either working in or supervising almost every area of law enforcement.
Slade’s integrity, accountability, teamwork, and vision lends to his exemplary leadership. It was privilege to work for him. I believe there is no other candidate equal to his leadership.
