As one of two candidates in the run-off election for sheriff of Catoosa County, I wanted to write and thank you for coming out to vote in the primary election. I was blessed to receive over 43 percent of the vote and now stand as a candidate in the run-off election on Aug. 21.
As many know, I have a degree in Criminal Justice and have spent over three decades in law enforcement. From the time I was in high school, I knew that law enforcement was where I could make a difference in the community I love. Because of this, I started out as a dispatcher and through the years, worked my way through college and currently serve as commander of the Drug Task Force for the Lookout Mountain Judicial District.
Law enforcement is my life’s calling.
I am honored to receive endorsements from people that I have worked with and admired for many years. Their trust in my ability to lead the Catoosa County Sheriff’s Department means a great deal to me. However, the ultimate endorsement that truly matters is from you, the voter.
I am asking for your vote on Aug. 21. If you will give me your trust, I promise I will do everything I can to make you proud.
My wife Denise and I have enjoyed visiting with so many of you during this campaign. Your concerns and your advice have both been taken to heart and if elected, I promise that we will continue to have conversations that will continue to assist us in making Catoosa County the best place to live and work.
Thank you for your consideration.
Larry C. Black
