Kevin Carroll on WRVA discussing his campaign
Hi and Welcome!
Thanks for taking the time to visit my web page today.
I have decided to seek election to the Chesterfield County Boards of Supervisors to represent the Matoaca district and I humbly ask for your support.
I have been involved in public service since I was 15 years old. I became a volunteer fireman with the Tiogue Fire Department and achieved the rank of Lieutenant at 19 and Captain at 23.
In 1986, I was offered the opportunity of a lifetime when I was selected to become a Chesterfield County Police Officer. I took an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States and to protect the members of my community. This is an oath that I have never taken lightly. I retired from the police department on October 1, 2018 after 32 years of service.
I believe in service before self and our community benefits when we give of ourselves. I am a Conservative and I believe in the Constitution of the United States. I have a proven track record of principled leadership and community activism.
I spent most of my career in a leadership role as a supervisor with the police department and as President of the Chesterfield Fraternal Order of Police. I also served on the executive board for the Fraternal Order of Police of Virginia. In 2014, I was honored to be elected President of the FOP of Virginia and served for the last four years as chief operating officer and presided over numerous conferences and meetings. As legislative chairman for the FOP of Virginia, I worked with members of the legislative and executive branches on legal and budgetary matters that impacted the entire Commonwealth of Virginia.
In short, I believe I possess the qualities to provide ethical and principled leadership for our community. I believe leaders need to listen to the people who entrusted them with the authority to make decisions. Transparency and truth are an essential mainstay in government. If you’re trying to do something that the community is so vocally against, then perhaps it’s not the right decision. Having attended and watched public meetings since I was a young man I can usually tell when the public is in support of a decision or not. If given the opportunity to represent you, communication will be a two-way street starting with listening.
My friends have asked why I would want to do this in a day and age where politics seem to be so toxic. My answer is simple really, I owe all that I have in life to the people of Chesterfield who allowed me to serve them as a police officer. You provided me with not just a wonderful career and financial stability, but the ability to make a difference in people’s lives. Through the years I have been blessed to make so many dear friends in Chesterfield County. I truly care about the future of Chesterfield and I believe if we work together, we can continue to provide what our founding fathers intended for us.
Fraternally and Sincerely,
In the Preamble to the Declaration of Independence for this country, our founding fathers declared:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed “
The Constitution of the United States started with:
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
The photos above: Kevin received a Meritorious Service Award for his dedicated work while serving on the police department memorial committee that designed, funded and oversaw construction of the permanent memorial to honor the Chesterfield County Police officers killed in the line of duty. The memorial is located on the grounds of the 1917 Historic Courthouse on Rt. 10.
I had the honor to speak at a United for Blue rally in Washington DC, April 2017
