Politics took center stage Wednesday when local politicians made their cases to the crowd at the Walton County Chamber of Commerce's monthly luncheon.

Time was allotted for those vying for the offices of Sheriff, School Superintendent, and for the District 1 County Commission seat to get up and state why they felt they should be elected or re-elected to office.


Chamber President Kellie Jo Kilberg first introduced Walton County Sheriff Mike Adkinson, who is seeking a second term in office.

Sheriff Adkinson, a Republican, says he is running on his record as a “decent lawman.”

Adkinson promised in his original campaign in 2007 that he would bring professionalism to the Sheriff's Office, and he believes he has.

His office has achieved accreditation, which, for him was a major goal. He has also set performance measures that include courteous service and continuing education for his deputies.
