Rusty Fulbright officially announces his bid for Stephens County Sheriff in 2020 election
On Monday, March 2, Rusty Fulbright filed paperwork to officially announce his candidacy for the upcoming 2020 Stephens County Sheriff’s election. The General Primary is scheduled for May 19. Early voting began Monday, March 2 and continues through Friday, March 20.
“Most of my 21 years in law enforcement have been spent as a Drug Task Force Supervisor, Criminal Investigations and as a Special Response Team (SWAT) Commander,” Fulbright said. “I feel like I have the backbone, skills and knowledge necessary to take on the growing gang problem and drug epidemic facing Stephens County from a Law Enforcement perspective”.
Fulbright plans to spend the next 11 weeks continuing to meet and visit with local residents to hear their concerns and answer questions. Fulbright will also be releasing information in the coming weeks that fill voters in on his platform with key areas that include:
Stephens County’s growing drug and gang crisis
Human Trafficking signs and prevention
Restoring trust and mending the relationship with Citizens who have been underserved
Assembling a mentally and physically fit force to better serve our citizens
“This is a critical point in the future of Stephens County’s citizens, especially its youngest citizens,” Fulbright said. “It is time to draw a line as a community and decide we will not let our children and grandchildren grow up in a place where they do not feel safe because of addicts roaming the streets, or feel unprotected by local law enforcement”.
