Sheriff:  I’m Not Running for Office for Anything Again
Sheriff: I’m Not Running for Office for Anything Again

Sangamon County Sheriff Neil Williamson says it’s time to travel and spend time with his grandkids.  He says when he clears out his desk in 14 months, he is done punching a time clock.

Williamson’s name has been tossed around for years as a mayoral candidate but he says he won’t run for any public office once he retires.

“The mere fact my name has been mentioned as a potential mayoral candidate is flattering” Williamson says “however it is becoming a distraction.”

Williamson says he has some things to do on his bucket list but also wants to be of service to the community. He is supporting Undersheriff Jack Campbell in his bid to become the next sheriff.
