Congressman David Trone
"I'm proud to support Karl Bickel as he fights to become our next Sheriff in Frederick County. As the needs of the county change, Karl brings the knowledge and leadership skills necessary to address the challenges ahead and lead a new, 21st century vision for the Sheriff's Office.
Over a decades long career in law enforcement, he's worked to create just and safe communities as a major city police officer, law enforcement consultant, second in command of Frederick’s Sheriff’s Office and in partnership with the U. S. Department of Justice overseeing national training and technical assistance provided to state, local and tribal law enforcement."
Our Revolution is America’s leading grassroots-funded progressive political organizing group, dedicated to empowering everyday Americans.
They know that the next Frederick County Sheriff must deliver a vision for change, get away from opportunistic political issues, and focus on keeping us safe. The current sheriff has brought costly civil litigations, jail suicides, accusations of racial and sexual discrimination, constant fear mongering and public demonstrations against his policies. Karl Bickel is committed to providing the increased transparency, accountability, citizen participation and community-oriented focus Frederick County needs.
