Race for Ohio County Sheriff Heats Up

Posted: Updated:

 The race for Ohio County Sheriff could shape up to be one of the tightest of the year. As many as five candidates have thrown their hats into the ring.

One of those is Democratic Candidate Bob Henry. He retired from the Wheeling Police Department after 31 years with the rank of Sergeant. Henry is currently serving as a part time officer for the Village of Bethlehem. He said he wants to be a working sheriff that is involved with the community.

"On the Wheeling Police Department I did many jobs, boat patrol, foot patrol, plain clothes patrol, undercover but my main job was in the Dare Program. I was in the schools. It was part of community service programs and I firmly believe in the community service. When you build up trust with the people they will give you information," Henry said.

Henry will be facing off against fellow Democrats Tom Howard and Vinny Jacovetty in the West Virginia Primary.
