School Board Representative Candidate

Jim Jensen

Triton Schools

I am serving my 11th year on the Triton School Board. I am retired from the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office, where I was a D.A.R.E. Officer, School Resource Officer in 3 school districts, and Sheriff. As Sheriff, I worked with school districts in the county and surrounding counties on school safety. I served as chairperson of Statewide committee where I worked with agencies from all over the state. I have volunteered many hours at the school throughout the years my children have been in school. I would like an opportunity to represent rural Minnesota schools on the MREA Board. The experience I have and my passion for education are qualities that will make me a good Director.
