Valdosta - A South Georgia sheriff is named the state's best.
Lowndes County Sheriff Ashley Paulk is Georgia's Sheriff of the Year. He also won the award back in 1998, and is the only sheriff in the state's history to receive the honor twice.
"When I received it I said I know a lot of people who should've received it above me because we have a lot of good sheriffs in the state of Georgia, and I felt if I'd been the one picking, I'd have picked some of them," said Paulk.
Paulk has served as sheriff of Lowndes County for 11 years and is seeking re-election this year.
