“As a young college student at USI, I can remember sitting in Sheriff Riney’s living room as he told stories of living at the old jail, where all the elected sheriffs used to live with their families.
Since that time, being Sheriff has been a dream of mine, and fulfillment of that dream nears as I announce my candidacy for Vanderburgh County Sheriff.”
