Dan Seiler, Republican

For Sheriff

For Sheriff

July 13, 2006

Dan Seiler, a retired Maryland State Police sergeant and chief investigator for Cops Inc., a Hagerstown-based private investigations firm, is running for Washington County sheriff in the 2006 election.

A Republican, Seiler, 57, of 401 Thames St., Hagerstown, said he wants to work more with the community, such as meeting with all of the town mayors, to ensure the residents feel they can talk to police about their concerns.

"It's not being done enough," he said.

Seiler said he also wants to take "an in-depth look at the budget" to make sure there isn't unnecessary spending.

"I want to run it like a business," Seiler said. "It has to be cost-effective."

Current Sheriff Charles Mades, 65, who has won a record five terms as sheriff, has not said whether or not he will run for a sixth term.

Seiler said he ran Mades' campaign for 12 years as his treasurer.

"He's been a good sheriff, but I think the county's ready for a change," Seiler said.
