Sheriff's candidate plans to file appeal this week

March 12, 2004

Lee County-- A man who wants to be sheriff continues his fight to get on the ballot.

Jimmy Kerfoot was disqualified from running as a Republican in the Lee County Sheriff's race because he missed the deadline for turning in paperwork.

He plans on asking a judge to intervene this week, "We will have a non-biased judge that may or may not be influenced by local community leaders. I think we will get a fair shot and that's all I'm asking for is a fair shot."

But, just in case he loses in court, Kerfoot is collecting signatures so he can run as an Independent.

He has close to 300 of the 500 signatures he needs. He hopes to get those with a huge sign at his store asking for votes.
