Nashville - Anthony Heath is the new sheriff in Berrien County.

Heath won six out of ten precincts in Tuesday's run-off election, beating Timothy Jernigan with 55 percent of the votes.

He now looks forward to taking office and working to rid the streets of drugs, working with the budget and getting the struggling department back on track.

And after over two months of campaigning and elections, he's happy to finally have the results.  "Its mixed emotions of relief and excitement to get in there and get the job done, start moving forward with the job at hand," Heath says.

Heath could be sworn in as early as Friday afternoon.   His term will last through December of 2008.
