Throws his Hat in the Ring for Sheriff
of Laurens County
After giving the matter thorough consideration and
at the earnest solicitation of many friends, I have definite
ly decided to enter the race for sheriff of Laurens County
at the coming election.
I am making the, race, not as the candidate of any
clique or clan, or because I think the people of Laurens
County owe me anything, but simply because I am satis
fied that I possess the qualifications to fill the office and
because I want the job. I have nothing against either of
my announced opponents. It so happens that all of us
want the same job, and under the constitution I have as
much right as they to go before the people and ask them
for their votes.
I was born and reared in Laurens County, as were
all of my people as for back as they can remember or
hear about. If you, Mr. Voter, do not know me person
ally, ask your boy about me, and if he does not know
me, then both of you ask someone who does know me.
I am in the race to win and am going to win if hard
work and clean politics will get me anywhere. I will ap
preciate your vote and your support.
