“Citizens are demanding change and the voters of Fulton County are no exception,” says Patrick Labat, who is challenging incumbent Sheriff Ted Jackson in the Democratic Party’s sheriff’s runoff election on August 11. Political observers believe Jackson is in trouble with Labat getting enough votes in the June 9 primary to force a runoff— a primary which also featured another anti-Jackson candidate who came in third place).

By the way, Fulton Countians who voted in the June 9th Republican primary cannot participate in this Democratic runoff. However, those who did not vote at all on June 9th can participate in the election.

Labat says that “law enforcement and public safety are evolving, and now is the time for new, innovative leadership that is capable of leading through these challenging times. And we appreciate the support we have received from citizens who have helped us reach the runoff on August 11.”
