Tim Walz, Congressman & Candidate for MN Governor

“I proudly support Dave Hutch for Hennepin County Sheriff. For the last 15 years as a law enforcement officer, Dave has worked tirelessly to improve the safety and health of Minnesota communities. His proven commitment to transparency will foster public trust while improving public safety.

Ilhan Omar, Candidate for United states congress

It is time to fight for the America we know we deserve, both nationally and locally. While I work to combat bigotry in Washington, Dave Hutch will fight against it here at home in Hennepin County. He treats everyone he encounters with dignity, and will make sure people of all communities feel protected and respected. He is ready to do the work of  building a relationship between the police and the community. And he knows that relationship can’t be built without transparency and open communication. For these reasons, I am proud to support Dave Hutch for Hennepin County Sheriff.

Hutch understands this, just as he understands that all parts of Hennepin County have their unique strengths and challenges. Hutch will bring his respect for all people and communities to the role of Hennepin County Sheriff, which is why I am proud to support him.
