Sangamon County Farm Bureau leaders have chosen Jack Campbell, the decorated former undersheriff, as their candidate in the upcoming election for Sangamon County Sheriff.
Both candidates in the race were interviewed by the Farm Bureau’s Governmental Affairs Committee and Political Involvement Committees. The decision to go with Campbell was formally announced Saturday (Aug. 25) at the Bureau’s 100th Anniversary Celebration Dinner.
“Jack has steadfastly worked with Farm Bureau over the years to establish a true partnership to protect farmers and rural residents,” said Phil Sidles, president of the Sangamon County Farm Bureau Board of Directors. “He’s demonstrated his commitment for engaging organizations like ours to stay up to date on law enforcement needs in all segments of Sangamon County.”
The Sangamon County Farm Bureau is the local agriculture industry’s leading voice. With nearly 10,000 members enlisted, the Bureau promotes a better and stronger agriculture economy through legislative and regulatory involvement, policy development and advocacy, marketing, teaching agriculture in the classroom, and leadership development programs.
