Sheriff David Beth

Sheriff David Beth

Incumbent Sheriff David Beth won his fourth consecutive election Tuesday night, with a resounding 70 percent or 6,972 of the votes to challenger David Zoerner’s 2,912.

Because both candidates ran as Republicans and there were no Democratic challengers, this race decided the sheriff’s race.

Voters had the choice of voting a straight ticket and Kenosha County voted Republican, with 5,847 votes or 54 percent versus 4,962 votes, or 46 percent Democrat.

Incumbent David Beth is a 32-year veteran of the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department and began his career in law enforcement at the age of 21. In 1989 he became the county’s first DARE officer and in 2002 was elected the county’s 58th sheriff.

Both Beth and Zoerner were born and raised in the area. Zoerner brought to the table a long list of Marine Corps military experience that also included service in the White House under presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush.

Zoerner is currently a sergeant with the sheriff’s department and supervisor in the Conveyance Bureau.
