TURNER COUNTY, GA (WALB) - Candidates in a runoff for sheriff of Turner County as campaigning hard. Sheriff Randy Kendrick and former Sycamore Police Chief Roy Wiley have been hitting the street, knocking on the doors of voters. Both have high hopes of change and improvement.

"I look out for the interest of people in Turner County. I've been here for 45 years, all my life, and I love the people here and I love my job," says Sheriff Randy Kendrick who has been in office for eight years.

"There are some things that have happened in this county that people are not happy about including myself, and we're giving the voters an opportunity for change," says Roy Wiley

Wiley says he's unhappy with the way the Sheriff's department has handled their budget, and wants to reopen unsolved death cases. Kendrick says he wants to continue to improve other areas, such as courthouse security, preventing identity theft, and improving current anti-drug children's programs in the schools.  Don't be surprised if you get a knock on your door from one of the candidates. They say they'll be walking the neighborhoods up until the election on August 5th.
