Walworth County citizens, for 14 years, I have been honored to serve as your sheriff. In that time, the Walworth County Sheriff’s Office has overcome many challenges while providing you excellent public safety. The sheriff’s office has a highly trained staff. All staff members are qualified to handle the positions they are assigned. This is the case with Undersheriff Kurt Picknell.

Undersheriff Picknell has been my second in command for 14 years. Kurt has deliberately prepared himself to become the next sheriff. He has held several positions and is a vital part of sheriff’s administration. Kurt knows what it takes to get the job done on the frontline and in the boardroom. Undersheriff Picknell oversees the day-to-day operations, each division’s administrative commanders, and, in my absence, acts as sheriff.

Undersheriff Picknell’s knowledge doesn’t stop with his job at the sheriff’s office. Kurt Picknell holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in criminal justice management and a Masters of Business Administration with an emphasis in public administration. He graduated from the FBI National Academy and Northwestern University’s School of Police Staff and Command.

The position of sheriff must be filled by a highly qualified individual. That person is Undersheriff Kurt Picknell.

Thank you for the support you’ve given me for the last 14 years. I’m asking you to extend that support to Undersheriff Kurt Picknell. On Aug. 12, vote Kurt Picknell for Walworth County sheriff.

DAVID GRAVES

Walworth County sheriff
