Sheriff hopeful step closer to qualifying

June 29, 2004

Lee County-- A sheriff hopeful is one step closer to getting his name on the November ballot.

Jimmy Kerfoot turned in paperwork and a $1,500.00 dollar check to qualify as an Independent in the Lee County sheriff's race.

He has until July 13th to turn in 549 signatures from registered Lee County voters, "I am still going to get signatures until July 12th so that gives me an opportunity to meet people. I am walking in the afternoon, during the day, and it is good."

Kerfoot says he has collected more than 1,000 signatures so far. Of course, they have to be confirmed registered voters to count.

Kerfoot is seeking to run against long-time Lee County Sheriff Harold Breeden in November.
