This morning it was Lt. Curtis Landers. But by the time the Lincoln County Commission began their weekly meeting, Lt. Landers became SHERIFF-elect Landers.
Sheriff Dennis Dotson decided to retire early which left the job vacant effective June 1st. So June first will be the day Lt. Landers becomes Sheriff Landers as per his appointment by the commissioners Wednesday. Landers has no official opponent on the ballot save for anyone who might try a write in campaign.
Sheriff Landers has a long career in law enforcement, much of it with the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.
P.S.: I want to apologize to our readers who must’ve figured I had confused our new Sheriff’s last name with a guy who founded a chicken to go restaurant or still running for President of the United States. Where-oh-where was my head!!
