Sam Zordel – Republican Candidate for Prowers County Sheriff

The Prowers County Sheriff’s Department is made up of fine individuals; however, new leadership will be required when Sheriff Faull steps down at the end of his term in late 2014. I am introducing myself as the candidate most qualified to lead the department.

With the exception of brief periods of time during my childhood and my military service, I have resided in Prowers County. I was born here, graduated from Lamar High School, and shortly thereafter joined the Army during Operation Desert Shield. For six years I served in the infantry as a mortar man. Following, I returned to Prowers County where I met my wife, Candace Cross. We were married in 1999 and have resided in Wiley since 2000. We have two children, Cade and Caitie.

In September 1996 my career with the Sheriff’s Department began when I was hired as a Detention Officer. I completed the POST training academy in 1998 and was promoted to Patrol Deputy in 2000. Subsequently, I was assigned as an Investigator with the Prowers County Drug Task Force, and in 2003 promoted to Senior Deputy. I am responsible for supervising the patrol division and training fellow employees and Posse members in various aspects of responsibility within the department. I participate in the annual budget process and am well versed with writing and obtaining grants for the department.

Involvement with local civic organizations is important to me; I am an active member of Granada Masonic Lodge #72 and a past Master. I am also a member of Lamar’s York Rite lodges.

Discipline, Leadership, Integrity, Honesty, and Courage are the grit of a good and effective department. I am the contender best positioned to bring these merits to bear as Sheriff of Prowers County. Your support of me in the upcoming 2014 elections is coveted.

Sam Zordel
PO Box 206
Wiley, Colorado
