Republican deputy announces candidacy for Kane County sheriff
Sgt. Kevin Tindall has thrown his Republican hat into the ring for Kane County sheriff, where he will face off against Democrats Lt. Willie Mayes and Sgt. Ron Hain, according to a report from the Kane County Chronicle. All three men are Kane County Sheriff’s Office deputies.
"I chose the timing of my announcement out of respect for police officers who have given their lives in protecting the public," Tindall said of his decision to announce his candidacy at the Veteran’s Memorial in the Kane County Government Center. "And I chose the location out of respect for the men and women who gave their lives in military service to protect our country.”
Tindall is a Sugar Grove resident who has served the community in various capacities. He graduated from Kaneland High School and Waubonsee Community College before joining the Sugar Grove Fire Department in 1988. He served in the department until 2008 and served on the fire district board from 2009 to 2011. In the Kane County Sheriff’s Office, he is patrol division supervising sergeant and the Kane County Bomb Squad commander.
"I will work closely with [Kane County Board] Chairman [Chris] Lauzen and the Kane County Board to make decisions that benefit the taxpayers without sacrificing public safety," Tindall said, emphasizing his fiscally conservative principles.
