DC sheriff to run again

It’s official.

Douglas County Sheriff Ron Pierini will seek another four-year term.

“I don’t think there was any doubt I wouldn’t run in 2002,” he said Friday.

Although the election process doesn’t really start until next winter, Pierini said the time is now to begin organizing a campaign.

Also, Thursday marked public recognition of his 25th year with Douglas County.

And Pierini hopes to make it 30 years.

“I’m just not ready to retire,” he said.

He was honored with a plaque during Thursday’s Douglas County Commission meeting.

The ceremony was attended by about 20 sheriff’s employees.

Pierini said his office faces a steady challenge from growth, which will require additional staffing.

“Money is also going to be an issue,” he said.

Pierini added that he “enjoys (the) job immensely.”

“It’s a great community to work for,” he said. “The men and women of the department couldn’t be better.”

“There’s a lot of things to accomplish in the future and to make this the best community we know how,” he said. “We look forward to these challenges.”
