Jefferson County Native, Mike Chapman, Announces
Candidacy for Sheriff
RIPPON, WV – Today, Rippon-native Mike Chapman, formerly announces his bid to
seek the open seat of Jefferson County Sheriff.
“Since graduating college and during an over 25-year career in business, I have
committed thousands of hours of service to Jefferson County community
organizations and efforts, including ten years as a Reserve Deputy with the
Jefferson County Sheriff's Office. I am excited to launch my campaign to become
your next Sheriff.
“Jefferson County is a special place for me, and I am thankful for the community I
call home. To become Sheriff means continuing my service to this community,
being a steward of your hard-earned tax dollars and providing safety to each of
you, my neighbors. I sincerely believe in putting this community first.”
The Sheriff's job is much more than just law enforcement. The Sheriff serves as the
county’s Treasurer and is responsible for the collection of taxes and the disbursement of
monies from the county treasury.
To perform these and other functions, the Sheriff oversees around 75 paid personnel and
25 volunteers while managing a budget of approximately $5 million.
“As an experienced business manager and organizational leader, I will bring the
necessary set of skills and leadership to the office to effectively and efficiently
manage our taxpayer dollars while continuing to lead the important law
enforcement functions with integrity.”
