Sheriff Candidate Interviews 2022
Wayne Howard Reporter
While all three of the candidates for Sheriff were invited, only Sheriff Bill Beam attended the Lincoln Herald's interview session Monday evening (April 25th). Erin Long, a former Lieutenant with the Sheriff's Office seeking to replace her former boss, said she was unable to attend because of her work schedule. She is currently a Captain with the Bessemer City Police Department. The third candidate, Ronnie Messer, did not respond to our invitation.
We also conducted interviews with six of the seven Republican candidates seeking seats on the Lincoln County Board of Education. The Democratic candidates were invited but were unable to attend. We will post a link to that session in a separate article.
We are also doing one-on-one interviews with each of the candidates for Lincoln County Commissioner. Those will also be posted in articles over the next several days.
The East Lincoln Betterment Association held 'Meet the Candidates' events earlier this month. Those sessions are also posted on YouTube:
