Chris Harvey qualified on Friday for the Republican Primary as a candidate for Sheriff.

He said, "I'm the only Sheriff's candidate that has served throughout the Sheriffs Office from the Jail to patrol to narcotics detective to Internal Affairs supervisor

"I'm thankful for the support of the rank and file deputies and officers not only in the Sheriff's Office but throughout the Hamilton County law enforcement community.

"I'm running for Sheriff because I will be a better manager of taxpayer dollars. I will not ask for $300,000 above the budget only to use that money to hire family, friends and campaign contributors. I'll certainly not hire my son to do a non-essential job and make him the highest paid hourly employee at $35 an hour.

"I'm concerned over President Obama's policies not his race. I don't think there's going to be a race rebellion that mimics the post Civil War era. I think a young person that gets a little rebellious needs the love of a family and needs to go to church and school not be sent to the funeral home.

"I'm a life-long Republican. Charlie Peveyhouse invited me to Ronald Reagan's Inauguration. I didn't switch parties. As a Republican I certainly could not support Andy Berke for Mayor. I'm the only candidate in this race that can say that. I'm the only candidate that didn't write a check to Andy Berke's campaign. 

"Bobby Dodd and I have been in touch with one another as recent as last night. He's considering several options in the political and private sector. He encouraged me in my campaign. We have the utmost respect for one another no matter politics."

Black-on-black shootings have gotten ... (click for more)
