David,
Glad to see your website up and running! Can’t wait until we have someone that cares about Cherokee County running our Sheriff’s Office! Wow! $100,000 for one Captain! Just downsizing that one position would open up enough to pay about THREE Deputies! Talk about job opportunities for the citizens of Cherokee County, which also means more security and more peace of mind! You have our vote and we will spread the great news as much as possible! Best of blessings to you!

David, I am so glad to see you running for Sheriff. I have known you for twenty years, and I know what you stand for. This county desperately needs you, and you have our full support. Please let me know what I can do to assist, down on the south end of the county. Looking forward to seeing you Saturday.

Ronnie C.
