Your Views: Kurt Picknell is natural successor for Walworth County sheriff
I am writing this letter in support of Kurt Picknell for Walworth County sheriff. Kurt is currently second in command at the sheriff’s office, serving as the undersheriff, a position he has held for the past 14 years. He is the natural successor for the office of sheriff.
Kurt is an experienced, dedicated and committed law enforcement official with 27 years of experience. Kurt holds a Master’s of Business Administration with an emphasis in public administration and is a graduate of the nationally recognized Northwestern University School of Police Staff and Command and the FBI National Academy.
I have known and had the privilege of working closely with Undersheriff Picknell and the Walworth County Sheriff’s Office over the past several years, including the recent death investigation in the town of Geneva. Undersheriff Picknell’s leadership and cooperation were paramount to the successful investigation.
I hold Undersheriff Picknell in high regard. Based on his education, experience, dedication, and personal values, I strongly support him in the upcoming primary election for sheriff of Walworth County.
