Allen is the current Chief of Police at Ina. He is a former Mt. Vernon Police Department officer and a supervisor at DuPont.

Lewis has 25 years of law enforcement experience and operates businesses in Jefferson County. Lewis said he has no agenda, other than to improve the community.

Morris, a truck driver and resident of the county for 20 years, said this is a chance to serve the community.

"I will bring honor and integrity back to the sheriff's office," he said.

Scott was unable to attend the forum, however he provided a statement to members of the media Wednesday afternoon.

"As many of you are aware, I am the power of attorney for my father's medical care. He has meetings set up several days this week, and on Wednesday, he has two appointments late in the day that I must attend."

He added, "This is a very important race for me, and I believe I have communicated my goals for the office of sheriff, out in the community at all the events my wife and I have attended, and we will be seeing more of the citizens in the days to come."
