Catoosa County sheriff’s candidates debate the issues
The two Republican candidates for Catoosa County sheriff squared off Monday night before an overflow crowd at the Boynton precinct meeting hall.
Candidates Larry Black and Gary Sisk will face each other in a runoff election Tuesday, Aug. 21. The winner is expected to face a write-in candidate in the general election in November, but election observers are predicting that the winner runoff will easily win that election.
On Monday, at an event sponsored by the Catoosa Republican Party, Black and Sisk each indirectly addressed questions about mailer sent out by the Sisk campaign which called into question several of Black's claims to his experience and questioned his departure from two of the jobs he has held in law enforcement.
In the end, neither candidate directly address those issues, with Black's supporters handing out a flyer afterwards in which the candidate addressed the charges one by one.
