Nashville - Tuesday is runoff election day for sheriff of Berrien County. Two candidates hope to succeed Sheriff Jerry Brogdon who resigned in August.
Anthony Heath and Timothy Jernigan emerged as the top two vote-getters from a field of eight in the September primary.
Both candidates are ready to take office. "I'd like to get the County Commission to approve the hiring of more deputies. We only have two deputies a shift here and that's not enough to cover Berrien County," Jernigan says.
Timothy Jernigan says more deputies will help combat the county's drug problem, which will help lower the crime rate in other areas and improve the schools.
It's an idea fellow candidate Anthony Heath shares but he has his own ideas on how to get it done. "I want to get with the people who are employed there and get some of their ideas on what needs to take place. I know the jail, the money to operate within the budget is going to be a task," Heath says.
Both say they can't do it without your help and are asking everyone to get out and vote in Tuesdays run-off election. "The numbers were great at the last election, but that election is over and tomorrow is a new day, it's a new election," Heath says.
Jernigan agrees. "They've had a previous sheriff here for 22 years and now they've got a chance for a change."
The polls will open in Berrien County Tuesday morning at 7 and close at 7 that night.
