“We need experienced leadership representing us in Washington, D.C.,” said Kaelin, who has been in law enforcement for over 40 years. “Bech is from here, he knows the district and he has the tools to get the job done.”

Kaelin has served as Nueces County Sheriff since 2006 and is a retired DPS officer, who is a past president of the Texas Department of Public Safety Officers Association. An Eagle Scout, Kaelin is a former member of the Board of Governors for Shriners Hospital for Children and has served in numerous capacities on community boards.

I know first-hand that he has always looked after the interests of Nueces County and the entire Coastal Bend.”

“I am thrilled to have the endorsement of man like Jim Kaelin, a U.S. Army and Vietnam Combat veteran, who has spent his life in public service protecting the people of Texas,” said Bruun. “Nueces County is lucky to have him as sheriff and we are all better for his service and his friendship.”
