Hello fellow citizens of Greene County. My name is Jimmie L. Benison, Sr. and I am announcing my candidacy in the upcoming election for Sheriff of Greene Co. I was born here in this county and raised in Forkland. I am married and have a total of six children, two of whom are my step children that I have raised from toddlers.
I am a United States Army veteran and I have been in law enforcement since 2004. I worked as Chief Deputy under the late Sheriff Ison Thomas. Not only have I worked in law enforcement in this county, I have also worked in surrounding counties. Therefore, I have a thorough amount of knowledge of the law and the running of the Sheriff Department. My plans as Sheriff are to be vigilant and available to all citizens. I want to make sure that our communities are safe. I plan to reach out to our children, especially our young boys, while they will still listen and before it is too late. I will also make sure that all five of our bingo facilities are contributing to our school system, our hospital and our first responders departments. If you share my vision, vote for me, Jimmie L. Benison, Sr. as sheriff of Greene County.
