Endorsement from Kevin Thom, Pennington County Sheriff

I am writing in support of United States Senator Mike Rounds.  In my former role as Director of the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) I had the privilege of working with Senator Rounds while he was then serving as our Governor.  In his role as our Governor, he was always supportive of law enforcement, and for that matter, all first responders. With his strong support, we were able to construct the George Mickelson Criminal Justice Center in Pierre.  The Center continues to serve first responders today and provides services that touch every community in our State.

For the past nine years I have served as the Pennington County Sheriff.  In this capacity I continue to work with Senator Rounds on public safety issues.  He is responsive to the needs of law enforcement, and not just in South Dakota, but on a national level.  He does not hesitate to stand alongside law enforcement and offer his support.

We are fortunate to have a person of his caliber who is willing to continue serving the citizens of our state and of our country.  Serving as a United States Senator is not an easy task. In each public office he has held, Senator Rounds has done it with professionalism, integrity and the strong South Dakota work ethic.

In times of crisis, like our current COVID-19 pandemic, it is more critical than ever to have an experienced Senator leading the charge for South Dakota at the federal level.  I have a high level of trust that Senator Rounds is the right person to lead us through a crisis.

Please join me in supporting Senator Mike Rounds in his re-election bid for the United States Senate.

Kevin Thom
Pennington County Sherriff
