Retired Deputy Barr Enters GOP Race for County Sheriff

The stage is set for a showdown to determine who will be the next Sangamon County Sheriff.


Former deputy Wes Barr told a large crowd of supporters in Springfield Wednesday that he’s “in it to win it” as he kicked off his campaign for the Republican nomination for sheriff.


Barr will face Undersheriff Jack Campbell, who announced his own candidacy in April.


Campbell has the support of Sheriff Neil Williamson, who is not seeking re-election.


Barr says he would like to reinstate the department’s crime prevention bureau… but isn’t sure yet how he would juggle the budget to pay for it.
