Massac County Sheriff Not Seeking Re-Election
By Chris Taylor
Metropolis, IL – Massac County, Illinois Sheriff Bob Griffey will not seek re-election next year. He's been Sheriff since 1998 and prior to that has put in more that 27 years at the Metropolis Police Department. 62-year-old Griffey says he feels it's time to let others take over. During his tenure at the department, Griffey is credited for creating round-the-clock patrols throughout the county. The Paducah Sun reports major party candidates for sheriff can start filing for the primary election in February from October 26 to November 2.
