Black, Sisk in runoff for Catoosa sheriff and other election results
RINGGOLD, Ga. -- Longtime drug enforcer and former Fort Oglethorpe Police Chief Larry Black won the most votes in the Catoosa County sheriff's race.
But Black, the former Lookout Mountain Drug Task Force commander, still must square off with Catoosa County Chief Deputy Gary Sisk in a runoff because neither received more than 50 percent of the votes. The runoff, which will decide the sheriff's race because there are no Democratic candidates, will be held Aug. 21.
"We're very happy with the results," Black said Tuesday night. "[But] we've still got another election to go through."
Five candidates ran for sheriff, attempting to fill the top law enforcement spot that will be empty when longtime Sheriff Phil Summers retires at the end of the year.
