Rekeweg is GOP’s pick for sheriff

May 7, 2014

    Incumbent Adams County Sheriff Shane Rekeweg is headed toward a second term in office — in all likelihood an uncontested one — following his lopsided victory over Deputy Larry Butler Jr. in Tuesday’s primary election balloting.
    Republicans voting in the contested primary race for sheriff handed Rekeweg a 2,089-935 victory over Butler. Rekeweg polled more than 69 percent of all votes cast.
    The incumbent prevailed in 24 of the county’s 25 precincts, losing to Butler only in Wabash Township.
    Following the final tally, Rekeweg said, “I think it’s a real testament to the trust the public has in me. I’m very humbled by their continued support of me as sheriff.”
