"JERRY" GOODWIN Will Seek the Democratic Nomination in Special Election to Fill Suffolk County Sheriff Seat His Principles are a Catalyst for Running ] Candidate for Suffolk County Sheriff and Revere Police Lieu- tenant Jeremiah F. Goodwin does ....... not want to be thought of as a politician, rather a senior law enforcement professional with over 30 years of law enforcement experience. He has the experience, dedication, and the determination to deliver effective police services and programs for the benefit of the county. Goodwin believes the men and women of law enforcement should not be influ- enced by special interests or political needs, rather their duty to protect and serve the community. Goodwin serves as Platoon Commander at the Revere Police Department. He is a decorated public servant, earning accolades and commendations from the City of Revere, the Commonwealth, and the United States for specific acts of bravery and his commitment to serve. If not for a trip to Camp Casey, South Korea in 2009 he would not be in this race. A fervent advocate for our nation's veterans, Goodwin was overseas to visit vith our troops. While there, he befriended a great number of soldiers. He was proud to find a young generation of Americans who were "strong and willing to serve others." One particular solider left a positive impression on Goodwin. The infantry solid, with some youthful indiscre- tions in his past, had become a skilled, combat tested, accomplished solider, and a consummate, gentleman. It was plain to see the young veteran was ready to excel. Upon the young soldiers honorable discharge from mili- tary service and return to the area, Goodwin was both surprised and disappointed when he learned the young vet- eran was denied employment by the Suffolk County SherifFs Department. That feeling of a law enforcement agency failing a young promising veteran stung. And that sting became a catalyst for Goodwin's continued evalua- tion of "the Governance of Law Enforcement in Massachu- setts." Goodwin further discovered that fiscal mismanage- ment had caused severe financial distress to the county correctional system. Goodwin is a man eager to improve the delivery of law enforcement service and establish fiscal responsibility at the Sheriff's Department. His goal is a strong, well-trained SherifFs Department, utilized as a community resource, with a new reputation for strict fiscal responsibility. Rel U- ing upon his experience in community policing he will bring all stake holders to the table to establish effective, community-based outreach programs particularly focused on at risk youth and vulnerable members of society. Goodwin is the only candidate in the race that has "walked the tiers" at the old Charles Street Prison under the Hon. Sheriff Robert C. Rufo. Goodwin will prioritize training, provide support, and efficiently allocate resources for the men and women who serve in the Sheriffs Depart- ment. He will ensure a fair and equitable recruitment, selection and retention policy. A son of Revere, Goodwin attended St. Lazarus Parochial School and St. Dominic Savio Preparatory High School in East Boston where he played basketball. Feeling the call to serve his country Goodwin enlisted in the United States Air Force, becoming a Security Police Specialist and a member of the elite 351 st Missile Security Squad- ton/Combat Support Group at Whiteman Air Force Base. After his military service, Goodwin earned a Bachelor's Degree from University of New England and a Master's Degree in Criminal Justice from St. Anna Maria where he studied under the Hon. Albert H. Bums, a long time Suffolk County Justice. Goodwin's mother, Margaret Carol Buckley fought a decades long civil rights battle to become the first woman in the history of the Longshoreman's Union. Goodwin's inspiration to serve was nurtured by his Godfather Cornelius "Connie" Buckley, the well-known news editor at The Pilot Newspaper for over three decades. Goodwin grew up in family of eleven children, many of who are prominent members of Suffolk County communities. What Goodwin treasures most in life is his role as a father. His eldest Jeremiah, Jr. followed in his foot- steps serving his country in the United States Army Infan- try and serving as a Police Officer in the Boston Police Department. His younger son Justin is a National Honor Society Member and high school student accepted to the S.T.E.M. Academy. His daughter Susan is a student with a perfect MCAS score and a growing interest in forensic science. For more information please contact The Goodwin Committee or visit the sites listed below.
