I want to encourage Catoosa County voters to go to the polls on Aug. 21 and cast their vote for Larry Black for sheriff. I have known and worked with Larry for more than 25 years.
I had the good fortune to have Larry Black as one of the executive board members during my tenure as chairman and co-chair of the Crime Stoppers Board of the Greater Chattanooga Area. Larry was an integral member of that board and earned a well respected voice among the other board members.
Larry is a graduate of the FBI National Academy and as such, is included in a strong fraternity of FBI National Academy Associates, as am I. Due to their stringent acceptance policy, this is an honor bestowed among a select few in the law enforcement community. This association has prepared him to be a leader during complex challenges.
Over the last 25 years during my tenure as director of security for three Fortune 500 companies, I have had the occasion to need Larry’s assistance. My staff always knew that if we needed help in the north Georgia area, Larry Black was our go-to person.
Larry Black’s reputation for professional integrity and quality of leadership are well known. Catoosa County deserves the kind of leadership he will provide and I will be proud to call him my sheriff.
