Shearon claims Republican primary victory in sheriff’s raceBy Emily Etheredge Published 11:11pm Tuesday, June 3, 2014
It was a close race between the two Republican candidates for Chilton County Sheriff with John Shearon receiving the unofficial results of 5,088 or 54 percent of the votes topping incumbent Kevin Davis who received the unofficial results of 4,326 votes or 45 percent of the votes.
“I was tickled to death to hear the final results come in,” Shearon said on Tuesday. “I want to thank everyone who took part in the campaign. I can’t thank people enough. The people who turned out to vote meant so much and at this point in time, it seems unreal.”
Shearon said he spent the day on Tuesday preparing his home for a “thank you” party for everyone who had helped in his campaign.
“We were going to have the party regardless of how the results turned out because we had so many people helping me in the campaign,” Shearon said. “We had a lot of people show up tonight to show their support. It is all about trying to make a difference and now we will get ready to go in November and look forward to the General Election.”
Shearon’s name will appear on the General Election ballot on Nov. 4 against Independent candidate Eddie Price and Democratic candidate Terry Wilson.
