Houston County Sheriff Race

By  | 

The countdown is on for the June 6 primary. Two men are running on the Democratic ticket in the Houston County sheriff's race.

Incumbent Sheriff Lamar Glover has been in law enforcement for 41 years; a state trooper for 31 years then sheriff for 12 years.

While in office, Glover upgraded equipment plus every murder and rape has been solved and even some cold cases.

If he becomes sheriff, he plans on focusing on domestic violence.

“People have been murdered and 11 of those are because of domestic violence,” said Glover.

Glover will be squaring off against Eddie Ingram.

Ingram is has been in law enforcement since 1979. He began in Houston County as a dispatcher moved to Villa Rica Georgia; then Holmes County as chief deputy then to Iraq and back to Ashford as Chief Deputy.

He plans to focus on drugs and crime if he becomes sheriff and educating every person on the dangers of both.

“I’ve been out on the streets and worked every area of law enforcement I don’t' mind getting out in the community,” said Ingram.

You need to get out in the community on Tuesday and vote for one of these two Houston County sheriff candidates.

Right now there is no one on the republican ticket for Houston County sheriff after last week's death of the only candidate Edward Charles Gibson.

However, Houston County Republican party officials may appoint another candidate to run for sheriff in the November general election.
