David Huckabay announces Libertarian 3rd Party Candidacy for Jasper County Sheriff, sends Pat Williamson a message
David Huckabay has posted the below statement on his Facebook Page. After seeing the loss of Scott Balch in the primary has announced that he is running for Jasper County Sheriff as a 3rd party candidate. In early 2018 Huckabay stepped aside and chose not to run against Balch, whom Huckabay highly admired. Now seeing that Balch lost the primary to Pat Williamson by 472 votes, Huckabay has reestablish his campaign for Sheriff. Huckabay is running as a Libertarian. The national Libertarian party is of course an alternative conservative political party to the Republican party and does not have anything to do with Democrats or Liberals. The Libertarian party platform is based on rights of self determination and low taxes.
Ladies and gentlemen of Jasper County, I wish to congratulate Trooper Scott Balch on a very classy campaign. His integrity and grace were both maintained throughout the primary.
Mr. Williamson, I have stood by and watched you tarnish the badge for years. I have watched you try to ruin good men with lies. Because of this, I will seek the nomination of the Libertarian Party to run for Jasper County Sheriff in the General Election of 2018. We will bring honor back to the department. I was mocked during my last campaign and told that political campaigns are a full contact sport. Suit up Mr. Williamson, I’ve learned a lot from you and Mr. Risner.
On the other hand, Marshal Schaetzel, good luck and may the best man win.
