We are into what we, as citizens of Richmond County, should consider the most important election we have held in years – that of sheriff. It will set the tone for our county and its success for years to come.
When businesses look to moving into new areas, they look for good schools, good local government, sound law enforcement and the overall quality of life. We have the opportunity to enhance the sound law enforcement factor of this equation, which will, in turn, enhance the overall quality of life. Hopefully, future elections will take care of the remaining factors.
While all the candidates have years of law enforcement experience, only one has the educational background, variety of experiences and proven leadership qualities necessary to lead one of the state’s largest sheriff’s departments. That candidate is Capt. Scott Peebles.
Capt. Peebles has the skills, the plans and the passion necessary to bring the department up to the level of law-abiding service to which all Richmond Countians are entitled. Please, if you have even an ounce of concern for the future of our county, ask for a Democratic ballot July 31 and vote for Scott Peebles.
Regardless of party preference, now is the time to do what is best for all of Richmond County, and the best for sheriff is Capt. Scott Peebles.
