I, Rick Poe Sr. , hereby announce my candidacy for the office of Owen County Sheriff. I have been a resident of Owen County my entire life. I am married to Lana K. Poe and together we have a daughter, Michaela who is 14. Lana and I have been married 17 years. I also have a son Ricky Jr., 35.
I respectfully ask for your vote my fellow Owen countians.
If elected, I pledge to work hard to curb the growing drug problem in Owen County. I also pledge to work with school officials to strengthen school security. I pledge to protect the constitutional rights of our citizens and do my duty as sheriff without showing favoritism to any individual. I have several other goals to improve the sheriff department’s service to Owen citizens, one of which is 24/7 availability to respond to calls.
I have served Owenton as a part-time policeman and also served as constable of district 1 for over 11 years. I have various college course credit hours in law enforcement and also attended training courses at the EKU Department of Criminal Justice in Richmond.
I sincerely ask for your vote and support and plan to share more information about myself and my plans to improve the sheriff’s department in the weeks ahead.
Rick Poe Sr.
