Lee County Sheriff Jim Sholl says he will run to stay in the office he has held for the last 16 months.
He was serving as Chief Deputy in late 2010 when he was appointed to replace Sheriff Buck Jones, who was retiring.
Sholl has been with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office for more than 24 years.
He says he intends to continue to serve and protect the citizens of Lee County with commitment, dedication, and loyalty.
Sholl graduated from the Iowa Law Enforcement Academy in 1988.
He has advanced through the ranks of the Lee County Sheriff’s Office since then, serving as Patrol Deputy, Jail Administrator and Chief Deputy.
Sholl was also appointed to the Lee County Narcotics Task Force, serving as an investigator and field supervisor.
Sholl will run as a Democrat in the June 5 Primary. The filing deadline is still two months away.
