Carl Ibsen, Independent for Missoula County Sheriff

by jhwygirl

I don’t know about you, but I’m intrigued by Carl Ibsen, a candidate for sheriff who’s running for the office under the premise that a sheriff should have no political affiliation.


Ibsen has worked as a law enforcement officer in Missoula for 37 years.

He lists DUI and alcohol issues and domestic violence as two of his issues on his main page.

Check that…we’ve got far too much of both, both here in Missoula and here in Montana.

Next up he lists training and recruitment, which are good things for both officer AND citizen.

Ibsen also has the county’s Detention Center listed on that front page, along with a page of his thoughts and concerns on the issue – and that is not only brave, but quite forward thinking and open and needed in this community. Issues concerning that detention center have headlined here far too long.

I’ll be looking more into Carl Ibsen. I hope to meet him – he sounds like the kind of candidate that is worthy of serious consideration.

    I hope you find out if Republicans or Democrats are supporting him and helping on his campaign.

    • we all love to hear from you binky!

      carl ibsen is the real deal alright. sensible and just.

      he’d be quite a change for missoula county from severely deranged and randomly cruel.

    • I don’t know that I care what Republcans or Democrats think of him….it’s what I think that’s important to me. No one’s telling me how to vote.

      If Ibsen wants to leave politics out of the Sheriff’s office and do the right thing? Hell, I’d welcome that of any elected office we have here in Missoula County or the state, for that matter.

      • we know that carl ibsen will be paying attention to drunk driving. he lost his wife judy last year to a drunk driver.

        judy wang was a dedicated crusader for victims of domestic abuse. i am sure that carl would allow no abuse to occur on his watch at the prison and i also think he will help to carry on judy’s work by protecting victims from abusers.

        democrat or republican? i could care less anymore. vote for the man- not the politics.

        don’t forget that the current jack ass cashing checks as our sheriff is a democrat.

    The “I” label comes out when the “D” has no chance of winning.

    I noticed that Ibsen has a booth in the Commercial Building at the fair. Might be a good opportunity to ask him a few questions.
