Dave and his opponents were invited to speak at the Floyd County Republican Women's meeting in January. Below is an excerpt from a Jan. 7 article in the Rome News-Tribune.
Maj. Dave Roberson cites his family's work in public safety and law enforcement as motivation for him to run for sheriff.
Roberson is the only candidate who currently works full time at the FCSO and, along with his current position as division commander, he has "had nearly every job at the sheriff's office" during his 25-year-long career.
Roberson stated that in his current leadership position, he is constantly on the road and seeing the people of Floyd County.
"I know the issues that we're having because I see them," he said.
