Occupation: Union County Sheriff

Occupational Background: Agriculture; Boise; Deputy Sheriff

Educational Background: Imbler High School; Eastern Oregon University (B.S Economics/Business)

Prior Governmental Experience: Union County Sheriff

It has been a pleasure to serve as your Sheriff. I will continue to build a law enforcement office that we can all be proud of and will always strive to hold myself and the Deputies to the highest ethical and professional standard. I hope to have gained your trust and your vote to continue serving as Sheriff.

Expanded patrols: Sheriff Rasmussen has increased patrol coverage. Outlying county patrols and school zone coverage have increased.

Agency partnering: The Sheriff's Office works closely with partnering agencies. Some agencies include: Oregon State Police, La Grande Police Department, Elgin Police Department, District Attorney's Office, ODOT, Shelter from the Storm, DHS, EOU, Drug Free Relay, and CHD.

Safer vehicles: Sheriff Rasmussen worked with past two Commissions in upgrading nine high mileage vehicles allowing Deputies to safely respond to calls.

Jail video cameras: Cameras installed in the Correctional Facility have increased safety of staff and inmate monitoring.

Sheriff Rasmussen continues to be strongly supported in the community because of the ethical and service oriented office he leads. Boyd is more concerned about the citizens of Union County than the prestige of being Sheriff. Boyd is a dedicated law enforcement professional whom I proudly support.

Boyd has always been an important partner in the community for drug education and prevention. He not only sponsors a team each year for the Drug Free Relay, he is also willing to work with other agencies to help keep our county safe. I fully support him in his re-election for Sheriff.
