JIM HENSLEY - A SHERIFF FOR ALL
CROOK COUNTY CITIZENS
Elected officials are stewards of the public trust, and the citizens want to know that their officials will spend public funds and grant monies wisely and efficiently. We all have to live within our means in tough times, and that's something that needs to be done within the public sector also.
I will be fiscally responsible, by spending the taxpayers' hard earned money only on items that are absolutely necessary for the safety of the public and the Crook County Sheriff's Office staff.
ACCESSIBLE AND MUTUALLY RESPECTFUL
I will be available to everyone; working for all citizens of Crook County. Additionally, I will work toward developing excellent relationships with other county government, city, and state agencies.
