Sheriff Matheny announces he won't seek seventh term
Jackie Matheny says six terms and 24 years will be enough time as sheriff as he won't seek reelection in 2018.
After nearly a quarter-century as Warren County Sheriff, Jackie Matheny has announced he will not seek another term, opening the door for a sheriff scramble.“When I first ran for sheriff back in 1994, I prayed about it and I was convinced it was God’s will of where he wanted me,” Matheny said on Friday. “And, each time it came up again, I prayed about it. Now, I feel like it’s time to go.”Matheny said he has no firm plans for his retirement.
