Rowland the only prepared candidate



I am a registered voter of Aiken County supporting interim Sheriff Jody Rowland. Sheriff Rowland is the most qualified candidate for the upcoming election on March 25. Sheriff Rowland has over 20 years of hands-on experience, including 10 years of management in the Aiken County Sheriff's Office and graduation from the FBI National Academy. With the current threat of war and terrorism in our society, we need his network of contacts from the national level to the local area. The professionalism of the sheriff's office needs his experience to continue to lead the department to meet the demands of Aiken County.

I feel that Sheriff Rowland is the only prepared candidate for this job. I challenge the citizens of Aiken County to research Sheriff Rowland and his qualifications. Then they will agree that he is the only choice for sheriff.
