Our coalition has a great concern about the safety of women, people of color, and all other voices in our community regardless of race, gender, abilities, etc.  Paul Barta has proven his skill time and time again in helping victims feel heard, respected, and safe with law enforcement and within the justice system.   

Paul Barta has extensive experience at various levels of law enforcement including administrative responsibilities. He is well-known for doing his work responsibly and fairly.   

Paul Barta is the most knowledgeable and articulate candidate for the position, while being open to conversation and opinions from all levels within our community.  

You can depend on Captain Paul Barta to ensure the Sheriff’s Office is, and will continue to be, transparent and maintain the agency with the high expectations our community deserves.   

We strongly believe the people of the greater Mankato area, who rely on the Blue Earth County Sheriff’s Office to provide fair and critical services to our community, should decide who leads and guides the Sheriff’s Office.
