Bruce Bechtold, St. Joseph
I have had the privilege of serving the citizens of Stearns County as a deputy sheriff for the past 28 years, the last 12 as the Chief Deputy Sheriff. I have worked alongside Sheriff John Sanner and the rest of the administrative team on a number of projects and cases. The operation of the Sheriff’s Office is a major undertaking with over 200 employees, a multi-million dollar budget and a large jail operation. It takes experience and leadership skills to keep this 24 hour a day agency running smoothly.
Sheriff John Sanner is the candidate that has the necessary skills to continue to lead the Stearns County Sheriff’s Office. Your vote for Sheriff Sanner on Nov. 4 will ensure that he and I will continue to serve you for the next 4 years.
