Brian BeGole of Antrim Township announced Tuesday morning he was launching a campaign for Shiawassee County Sheriff. Brian and Tammy raise their family of eight children on the same operating family farm where he grew up in rural Antrim Township. BeGole is a 25-year law enforcement veteran.
“I’m running for sheriff because I know we can do better, and I feel the public deserve better,” said BeGole, road patrol sergeant for the Shiawassee County Sheriff’s Office. “We need new vision and a new direction from our sheriff’s office in Shiawassee County. If elected sheriff, every decision I make will be based on the safety, the needs and the well being of the community.”
For Brian, this is bigger than himself. Brian knows what it means to serve the people, because he and his family have been doing just that for decades. His Uncle Lee was the first police chief in the City of Novi in Oakland County, serving for over 40 years, and his father George served as Shiawassee County’s 66th District Court Judge for 16 years.
Prior to joining the sheriff’s office, Brian patrolled the streets as a young police officer in a number of local cities and villages around the county, and he has built close ties with the people here. BeGole feels these good relations will help him and the deputies restore the reputation of the sheriff’s office and rebuild the confidence the good people of Shiawassee County once had for them.
