Letters to the Editor: Poe announces candidacy for Owen Co. sheriff

-A A +A

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.
Thank you.

Rick Poe Sr.
