By way of introduction, I am a retired Assistant Director with SLED and I have
known and worked along side Sheriff L.C. Knight for approximately 30 years, having met him early in his and my career. I knew then that with his work ethic he was going places.
I was so pleased when he ran for Sheriff and am even happier to see that he has offered for re-election.
Sheriff Knight has never run from tough issues and has been tenacious in his
efforts to rid Dorchester County of drugs and other crimes. I remember him as we rose through the ranks to Captain at the SLED before he offered for Sheriff. He has always approached investigations the same way regardless of the social status of the offender and he and I worked through the good and bad budget cycles and his answer to smaller budgets was to work harder and to be good stewards of the citizen’s funds. What a tribute to this fine man and the way he does Dorchester County’s business; fairness for all citizens. He is a fair-minded person who demands professionalism of himself and his staff. During his tenure as Sheriff, he has done all of the right things. I think Sheriff Knight does an excellent job.
If I lived in Dorchester County, I would vote for the re-election of LC Knight as
Sheriff, but since I do not live there, I wanted everyone to know how I feel. I have friends in Dorchester County and I hope you feel as I do and support the re-election of our friend LC Knight for Sheriff. He has done a great job and is a true professional and friend, but his work is not completed yet.
