We have an important sheriff’s election coming up.

Newnan and Coweta County are very special to me. Dr. Matt Burns did three wonderful things for me. He married me, brought me to Newnan and gave me three wonderful children who still are a part of this community.

Dr. Matt died in 2013, but he left his strong ideas and opinions with me. Right is right and wrong is wrong. There is no in between.

Our sheriff’s department needs overhauling. This is no fault of Lenn Wood… He inherited it. I admire him for trying. I feel new blood and ideas are the only solution to the problem. This election is only temporary filling the vacancy of Sheriff Yeager. Please give Randolph Collins a chance and if he does not perform, you have an opportunity to vote him out in the general election. 

From the bottom of my heart, 

Pat Burns
