Leesburg -- Lee county residents will now have another choice at the polls when voting for sheriff.

Reggie Rachals held a meet and greet with people Saturday to make his announcement.

Rachals has been a Lee County Deputy for the past 18 years. Before that he spent seven years on the Albany Police Department's force.

"I plan on doing a lot of changes as far as within the department and implementing programs that need to be implemented that I believe needs to be in the community. I look forward to serving in the county again as Sheriff," said Rachals.

Rachals plans to bring the D.A.R.E. and the Explorer programs back to the department if elected.
