Founding Dean, Rio Salado Community College

"What I most value about Adam Shepherd’s experience in helping to manage a public institution has been his administrative role in keeping the Sheriff’s Office budget in the black the last 11 years and his proven record of replacing or supplementing property tax dollars with grant dollars to provide critical services.”

Chief Deputy, Gila Co.; Deputy Chief, Maricopa Co. (Retired)

“In my 35+ years of law enforcement command I have never encountered any person as well qualified as Adam Shepherd to serve as your next Sheriff. His character is sterling, he is experienced, well educated, versatile, professionally and personally honest, and demonstrably capable. The people of Gila County are most fortunate to have him as a candidate.”

Judge (Retired)

“I was Adam’s Sergeant when he started out in Law Enforcement. He was an extremely good Deputy and I saw his potential then to become a leader in the Sheriff’s Office. Later when I was a Judge and he came before me to testify and provide evidence, he was highly ethical and very professional. Most impressive to me these days is his ability to work with all the elected officials, both within and without the County, as Undersheriff.”

District 2 Supervisor (Retired)

“When Adam Shepherd took over as Undersheriff in 2005 the Violent and Property Crimes reported to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reports Program for unincorporated Gila County totaled 1,800. By the time I left office in 2008 that number had decreased to less than 1,000 or a 44% decrease – a trend that continues today (down 60%). I attribute much of that to Adam’s leadership and his commitment to keep all Gila County residents safe and secure.”

Kaibab Industries

“Managing the financial affairs of the Sheriff’s Office is an important responsibility of the Sheriff. Adam Shepherd knows about fiscal responsibility and the vital tasks of establishing a budget, controlling expenses and prioritizing expenditures His experience and ability in this area will place the Sheriff’s Office on solid financial footing now and into the future. That’s just one reason I am supporting Adam for Sheriff.”
