NC Station Owner To Run For County Sheriff

PINEHURST BROADCASTING CORP. Talk WEEB-A/SOUTHERN PINES, NC owner and morning host STEVE "LEADER" ADAMS has announced his candidacy for Sheriff of MOORE COUNTY, NC, reports the SOUTHERN PINES PILOT.
ADAMS told the paper that his lack of law enforcement experience is "an asset... The sheriff’s position is a managerial position. They don’t kick down front doors. Our sheriff doesn’t even wear a uniform. He wears a coat and tie to work." He added that his decision to run was prompted by the 20% rise in crime in the county over the past decade, which he termed "unacceptable."
ADAMS will challenge incumbent NEIL GODFREY in the MAY 6th Republican primary.
