I served on the Anamosa Police Department from 1997-2002. I was a Jones County Sheriff Deputy from 2002-19. I was Chief Deputy from 2011-19. I was a K-9 handler from 2002-11.

     Why did you choose to run for County Supervisor? Why should Jones County voters cast their ballots in your favor? I chose to run for county supervisor because I believe I can better serve the public needs. I spent years working alongside the county supervisors, and am aware of the commitment needed to best address the needs within our county. I have a proven record of leadership, integrity, and the confidence to execute plans accordingly and make the difficult decisions. I will be available to meet with you; I will visit with you personally to discuss your concerns. I do not intent to just sit behind a desk.

     What do you believe are the core responsibilities of being a county supervisor? I believe the core responsibilities of being a county supervisor are fiscal. Spending money on actual needs. The county needs better roads, sound infrastructure, and a strong public safety system. The county needs to ensure the health and safety of citizens and employees. I believe it is time to return to core values, what is truly important, and what is in the best interest of the taxpayers and their investment into their county.

     NOTE: The Monticello Express tried repeatedly to reach out to County Supervisor Dist. 5 Incumbent Lloyd Eaken for his responses to our questionnaire, with no response.
