Related elected-office or public-service experience: Currently serving as Elbert County undersheriff.
Why are you seeking this office?
I am seeking the office of sheriff in order to continue to be of service to the citizens of Elbert County and to be a positive influence for the change I wish to see in my community.
What makes you the most qualified person for the position?
I am currently serving as the undersheriff and have worked my way up through the ranks of the department. I have served in almost every capacity of the department and truly understand the unique needs of each section of the sheriff's office. Coupled with my 30 years of experience and my dedication to the citizens of Elbert County, I am the best and most positive choice for our community.
What would your two top priorities be if elected?
My two top priorities are school safety and drug use/abuse. The safety of our children and grandchildren is of the utmost importance to me. I will continue to explore all of our options when it comes to protecting our schools and I am not opposed to having highly qualified and trained armed personnel there to render assistance if needed. Drugs are also a huge problem and I will ensure that we keep working with our local, state and federal partners to ensure that dangerous drugs do not gain a foothold in Elbert County.
What else should the voters know about you?
I have been fully dedicated to this county for 10 years. I attend as many community events as possible and I have worked to develop an annual safety fair and golf tournament that are funded with private donations and benefit our community. I plan to continue these events as sheriff.
