The Hennepin County Sheriff's Deputies Association's Political Action
Committee is proud to unanimously endorse Hennepin County Commissioner Jan Callison for re-election.
Over the last four years we have communicated with Commissioner Callison
regarding the need to prioritize adequate public safety funding and to meet
long term goals. Her commitments to courthouse security and the new 911
Communications Center demonstrate that she listened to our concerns.
We have found our conversations to be meaningful and productive relative to
employee labor issues. We understand the financial constraints of the county, and she has been honest in our discussions and provided useful direction to help us work to find solutions to long standing issues.
We cannot thank her enough for her presence during annual Law Enforcement
Memorial events. As we remember our fallen and the sacrifices that have been
made, we appreciate her show of support.
We appreciate Commissioner Callison for the frank dialogue and her attention
to the public safety needs of Hennepin County. She is open, honest, respectful, and thoughtful as she makes important policy decisions. We want to let voters know that Jan Callison is upholding her commitment to them.
Sheri M. Bukkila, Chair
