CHIPPEWA COUNTY — Chippewa County Sheriff, James Kowalczyk, announced Wednesday that he will not be seeking re-election, according to a press release from Sheriff Kowalczyk.
After 44 years in law enforcement, with the last 15 years as your Sheriff, I have reached the important decision to not seek re-election to a fifth term to serve as Chippewa County Sheriff. I have put a great deal of thought and reflection into this decision. I will always be grateful to the citizens of this great County, and my family and friends for their continued confidence and support in electing and re-electing me as their Sheriff.
I was raised in the Chippewa County community and serving as your Sheriff for the last 15 years has been the most rewarding experiences of my law enforcement career. I have been blessed to work along side some of the most hard-working, and extraordinary men and women in law enforcement; it has been an honor and privilege.
I am proud of what I have accomplished during my tenure as Sheriff, and will trust the good people of Chippewa County to make the important decision of selecting a new Sheriff to continue the legacy of providing law enforcement services to our community.
Thank You, Chippewa County!!!
