RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- Chuck Allen, also known as "Trooper Chuck", has announced he is running for Washoe County Sheriff.

According to a press release, Allen has been in law enforcement for 23 years with the NHP, serving as their public information officer for the last 10 years. He is also a member of the Nevada Air Guard.

In a press release, Allen said, "I have been a part of the command staff team at both the Highway Patrol division and Department of Public Safety-Director's Office for the past 10 years. This, coupled with nearly 30 years of military service, as well as serving in active leadership positions on many non-profit boards of directors, has provided me a wealth of diverse leadership and experience. I know the importance of providing accurate and timely information and how to engage the public."

Allen has lived in Reno since 1987. He has been married for 21 years to Teresa, and they have two grown children, Bailey and Sheldon.

Ok, ok. I get it. You give a tremendous amount of weight to financial matters. I will rest my trust in the unsung heroes behind the scenes. The civilian budgetary employees that really do all the work in that area. I give a large amount of weight to leadership philosophy. Clearly you give no weight to Chucks achievements at the Air Guard. So be it. He will not be starting from the top. There are times when those at the top have given away most of their relevance. Not by choice. It just happens. Officers stop doing the things that made them successful. The higher they go the more relevance they give away. Soon there is a loss of ground truth. I don't suggest this fate has befallen the other man in the contest. I don't know. Nor do I presume to know. I won't even, "believe" I know as you seem to believe Chucks leadership abilities are lacking. I do have a suggestion for our personal disagreements. It is simplistically elegant. Here goes. You vote for your man and I will vote for mine. Best of luck to your man. I hope you can wish mine the same.

Our comments are getting reposted, so I will close with this. If you are going to debate it's better to not put words in the other person's mouth. I do place importance on the financial experience of any candidate, our government employees are dropping like flies. You keep mentioning the Guard, did Trooper Allen have financial duties there ? I didn't find that in my research, but will look at what you present. You referenced officers becoming irrelevant, generally speaking that does not happen to officers who come up through the ranks of their own service org. I am sure that Trooper Allen is experienced in things Guard and NHP related. His run for sheriff seems like an after thought, unconnected to previous experience. It's like when people wanted Haley to run for Reno mayor, it doesn't make any sense. Martini with his background in banking has made a great mayor for Sparks, money skills do matter. Cashell in Reno has tremendous business experience and they still struggle. I'd like to see Chuck go up the ladder in his state career, he's a nice man from what I've seen.

His NHS experience is the only fiscal experience that Trooper Allen has to put forward, that's why it's mentioned. Had his expertise in finance been in the casino industry I would have made that analogy. Would you suggest that Ken Lay had nothing to do with Enron? Trooper Allen supports a business model that is not sustainable; I don't think that would change. As far as leadership skills, I don't believe that Trooper Allen has the experience needed to begin at the top. The role of Washoe County Sheriff is demanding & unforgiving of mistakes. It is not a position for on the job training. No reflection of Trooper Allen as a person or good citizen is implied or intended.
