CAIRO, GA (WALB) - Sheriff Harry Young is trying to accomplish something no Grady County Sheriff has done in more than 50 years.
Win three consecutive terms.
"I feel more at ease with this one, then I have with the past two. I feel like the people have known what I've done, looked at my record, and judge me by how safe they feel," said Young.
But his path to keep the badge has not come easy.
After defeating two opponents in the July 31st primary, he's now running against familiar foe and longtime businessman Earl Stuckey.
"In this time of the economy that we're in, I feel my business experience will apply real heavy to this job," said Stuckey.
Young and Stuckey will have the opportunity to address the public Tuesday night and again next week.
"I'm looking very much forward to those debates because that is when you can really tell what you want to do, and what you want to get accomplished, and what your goals are," said Stuckey.
Young says although he is running as a Democrat, he thinks the position of sheriff should be non-partisan. "The greatest sheriff's office is not a Democrat, Republican, Independent, you represent everyone in this county. And if something goes wrong, you're accountable for it."
Young says not only does he want to break the two-term curse, but he says he wants to continue being the sheriff for many years to come.
Young and Stuckey face off Tuesday night at 6:30 at the Cairo American Legion and next Thursday at the Roddenbery Memorial Library.
