Kathleen A. Heaney is pleased to announce her bid for re-election for the position of Sherburne County Attorney. Ms. Heaney has served as the Sherburne County Attorney since January 2003. “It has been an honor and a privilege to serve the citizens of Sherburne County. But our work is not done. We need to continue our collaborative efforts on issues of public safety, strategic planning and cost effective delivery of services.”
“I have worked in both public and private sector in law” said Ms. Heaney. “Delivery of quality service in a timely manner is critical to business-whether that business is government or the store around the corner. “ She continued: “I have made investments in technology to increase office efficiencies. I have prioritized economic development projects. We work to streamline handling of cases without losing site of the victim and the clients who we serve.”
Ms. Heaney works in with her partners in public safety. She holds tri-yearly meetings with law enforcement, probation, Health and Human Services. She is dedicating resources to truancy intervention, bullying intervention, safe schools and substance abuse prevention. Her office provides yearly trainings for law enforcement. She is proactive and collaborative in her efforts and actions.
With over twenty years of experience in the Sherburne County Attorney’s Office, Ms. Heaney can provide the leadership necessary to meet the continued demands while providing innovation. “I would ask that you allow me to again serve you as the Sherburne County Attorney. Please vote: Kathleen A. Heaney, Sherburne County Attorney in November 2014.”
Ms. Heaney resides in Elk River with her husband and two teenage daughters. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking our state parks; visiting historical sites and museums; swimming, canning, gardening, and reading.
