Barr Responds To Williamson Potshot, Says He Might Rethink College Requirement For Some Deputy Applicants If Elected


Sangamon County sheriff candidate Wes Barr says he would match up his experience against anyone with a college degree any day. 

 

Barr’s educational background has been raised as an issue by his fellow Republican, incumbent Sheriff Neil Williamson.  Williamson is backing Barr’s opponent, Undersheriff Jack Campbell.  He says Barr’s lack of a four-year degree makes him less qualified for the job of sheriff. 

 

But Barr says his decades of military and law enforcement experience is far more valuable than a diploma. 

 

And on the 970 WMAY News Feed, Barr said he would consider a policy to eliminate any college requirement for an applicant with active-duty military experience.
