As your Sheriff, I, Joe D. Tackitt Jr., would like to ask you once again for your vote and support on Nov. 8.

The biggest issue facing my department is the growth of Wilson County, which in turn requires my department to grow in number of deputies, investigators, jailers, and dispatchers, among other positions. I would like to be able to add more deputy positions to increase patrol coverage of the county, and to assist my Criminal Investigations Division in handling cases.

In order to do that, I face another issue, which is the budget in which my department operates. I fight to get better pay and technologies for my deputies and all my staff every year, and going forward I will continue to bring forth budgeting issues and concerns for my department. This will allow me to hire more deputies and retain the employees that I already have and to get the technologies to bring our department not only to the present, but into the future. Technology upgrades I propose include computer-aided software in all patrol vehicles, and in the office. In tackling this issue, my department and I will be able to better protect and serve the people of Wilson County.

For the past 24 years, I have served this county as sheriff and have not only done my best to do what is right by my department, but for the people of Wilson County.

The Wilson County News will provide a Candidates Forum in the print edition Oct. 26. In an effort to provide voters with information earlier, the Wilson County News is publishing candidate information as it is received.

I am wondering what party he is running for this election? Wasn't he a DEMO?
