Sheriff Candidate Barr To Change Ad Removing Toys for Tots Leadership Mention

Sangamon County sheriff candidate Wes Barr says he will change a radio ad after an objection from the National Toys for Tots organization.


Barr had previously been the local coordinator for Toys for Tots, and his successor in the local position appears in the radio ad, praising Barr’s “leadership ability and commitment to our community.”


But the national organization tells the State Journal-Register that its local leaders should not use their official positions to take sides in political campaigns.
