Having retired as assistant director of SLED, I’ve known and worked with Jay Koon for a number of years. When I first met Jay early in his career, I knew his hard work and dedication to service were going to serve him, and the citizens, well. I was so pleased when he offered himself for Lexington County sheriff.
Jay will conduct Lexington County’s business with fairness to all. He is a fair-minded family man who demands professionalism of himself and his staff. Jay has prepared himself through the ranks at the Lexington Police Department and the FBI National Academy. Jay is familiar with budgets and will hold the department accountable to the citizens and safeguard taxpayer resources against corruption and fraud.
Jay has done a great job at the Lexington Police Department and is a true professional and friend, but his work for Lexington County is not yet completed. I encourage all of my friends and the informed voters to vote for the best candidate for Lexington County sheriff, Jay Koon, on Tuesday.
