The 2020 Primary Election is happening June 2.
And with it creeping right up on us, the candidates are making their final push to get votes to become the next Harrison County sheriff.
Three candidates remain. They are Michael Jensen, current police chief in Woodbine; Brandon Doiel, chief deputy for the Sheriff’s Office; and Zach Cavalier, current police chief in Logan.
Of course, like with any race, candidates field many questions about a variety of different topics.
Below are two questions each candidate have received and answered in the past several weeks.
Question number one for Cavalier: What distinguishes you from the other candidates?
Cavalier replied: I have been a part of many different operations and different teams throughout my 18-year career. I have experience being on a multi-jurisdictional crisis intervention team (SWAT). I was on the SWAT team for 16 years handling intense, real-life situations such as a hostage situation in Tobias, Neb. and an active shooter at Americold storage in Crete, Neb. As a deputy in Nebraska, I worked with our narcotics Investigator where I worked with confidential informants completing undercover drug buys and executed search warrants on known drug houses. I was also a K9 handler where I worked with outside agencies on a weekly basis completing narcotic “sniffs,” evidence recovery, and tracking and apprehension of criminals. I have been to over 1,000 hours of continued education throughout the country and applied these trainings to real world situations. I believe these real-life events have prepared me to lead the deputies by example and apply the events I have worked through in my career to the Harrison.
