GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Sheriff Stan Hilkey says he wants to stay in office for four more years.
At the Mesa County Young Republican luncheon Monday, Hilkey announced he will run for re-election, taking advantage of the third term voters just recently approved.
Hilkey says Mesa County is making very interesting advancements in technology for law enforcement and he wants to see them through.
"We have just started our really big, important projects. Not just for the Sheriff's Office, but for all law enforcement, which translates to better, more efficient service for all citizens in Mesa County," says Hilkey.
So far, no one else is running against Hilkey for Sheriff, but he still plans to do some campaigning so members of the community can ask him any questions they might have.
