"I know public safety probably better than anyone else running, but I also know jobs. I know how to create a business." -Ken Fries
Allen County Sheriff Ken Fries will be completing an 8 year term as Sheriff next year and has reached his term limit.  So now, instead of helping people abide b the laws, he would like to start writing them instead.

"Please join me in welcoming Kenneth Fries, hopefully our next Senator."

Fries has an impressive law enforcement career with 32 years of service holding positions on the SWAT team, a K-9 patrolman, and for the past 7 years, the position of Sheriff.

"I know public safety probably better than anyone else running, but I also know jobs.  I know how to create a business."

One of Fries' main priorities if elected, will be to put common core education standards on hold.

"They are our most precious resource, our children.  They are the next generation and we can't allow this dumbing down of our children with the common core."

Since 1985, the State Senate seat for District 15 has been held by Tom Wyss, and he announced a few months ago that he will be retiring at the end of this term.

Along with Fries, other candidates that have announced their intention to run in the Republican Primary are Former Fort Wayne City Councilwoman Liz Brown and current Allen County Councilman Darren Vogt.
