Sheriff stepping down from GOP post

By ABBY ECKEL, Herald Staff Writer



Serving as both Franklin County sheriff and chairman of the Franklin County Republican Central Committee was spreading Jeff Richards too thin, he said.

Richards, who has led the local GOP the past 3 1/2 years, tendered his resignation at Monday’s Republican Central Committee meeeting, he said. The change is effective Dec. 9, when the group next meets.

“[Being chairman] takes a lot of time and so does sheriff,” Richards said. “I don’t have the time to devote to [both].”
