Focus on the Palmetto State

DECEMBER 2019 – Focus on the Palmetto State

In this special edition, we spoke with Lt. Robert Whatley, Hobart Lewis, A.T. “Tommy” Smith and Captain Darius Hall, all candidates running for the position of Sheriff of Greenville County. This position was recently vacated by Will Lewis after his conviction for misconduct in office. The primary election will take place on January 7, 2020 and the special election will occur on March 10 and the winner will fill the remainder of Lewis’ term. There will then be a regular general election in November.

Each of the candidates spoke about their experience, background and qualifications for this position. They each laid out their positions on several key issues that Greenville County is currently facing and each of them pledged to restore integrity and trust both within the sheriff’s office and the community.
