Barr Kicks Off Campaign For Sheriff

The race for Sangamon County Sheriff is on… and, for now, all the action is on the Republican side. 


Former deputy Wes Barr has kicked off his candidacy with a news conference at Madison Park Place… the site of the former John Hay Homes.  Barr says that neighborhood is an example of how communities can fight back against crime.


He says if he’s elected, he wants to reinstate the sheriff’s department crime prevention bureau to help other parts of the county reclaim their streets.  But Barr isn’t saying yet how he’d pay for that. 


Barr will meet Undersheriff Jack Campbell in next spring’s GOP primary.  Campbell has the endorsement of Sheriff Neil Williamson, who isn’t seeking re-election.
