CIRCUIT JUDGE - HOUSTON AND HENRY COUNTY
In Houston and Henry County, there is a run off for Circuit Judge, 20th Judicial Circuit of Houston and Henry County. There are two qualified men seeking election for Judge, which will fill the position Judge Larry Anderson currently serves in.
The two men who hae worked hard and both asked for your vote are Seth Brooks and Chris Richardson.
All of Houston and Henry County registered voters will cast their vote in this race.
COUNTY COMMISSIONER - HENRY COUNTY
There is a run off in a Henry County Commission Race. We recomend to the registered voters John Ralph Saunders, incumbent commissioner. He has served Henry County well.
SHERIFF - HENRY COUNTY
Incumbent Henry County Sheriff Will Maddox is retiring and not seeking re-election. There are two good men seeking election as Henry County Sheriff. Seeking election for Sheriff in the Republican primary are Eric Blakenship and Josh Moore.
Both are good men. In making a decision the biggest thing which has to be looked at is experience. Being a Sheriff is a large job with an awesome responsibility.
That is why RSN suggests Eric Blakenship as Sheriff. He has the experience to lead the department. One morning in Ariton there was an active shooter. I heard the shots. The snipers were in place with the suspect in the scope. When they asked Dale County Sheriff Wally Olson he instructed to keep in the scope, but time was on their side. The suspect was outside and could not get back into the house, the officers were in a safe position, it was daylight, and time was on their side. They took the young man alive and did not require the use of deadly physical force. Patience saved law enforcement from having the pull the trigger.
Those are some decisions Sheriff's have to make. And that is why RSN thinks the experience is needed.
Josh Moore, nothing negative or bad to say about him. Just experience is needed.
UNITED STATES SENATE
RSN recomends Katie Britt. A Enterprise native, the daughte rof Julian Boyd who owned Boyd's Marine. Katie Britt being raised locally, great parents, we think she will serve well.
COMMISSIONER - HOUSTON COUNTY DISTRICT THREE
A run off election in District 3 between Incumbent Ricky Herring and Richard Talley.
Herring is a Houston County Sheriff Deputy who has served one term as Houston County Commissioner and seeking a second term.
Talley is a Dothan businessman and seeking election as Houston County Commissioner.
The registered voters in District 3, Houston County, need to cast their votes in this race today.
