Bryan Baca was born and raised in Bushnell. He now lives in Macomb. He is the only candidate of the three who does not currently work at the sheriff's office. But he said he has worked with most of the employees on staff from his time as a K-9 trainer and has the experience necessary in law enforcement and corrections to lead the department.
