OWENSBORO, Ky. (11/8/13) - Daviess County Sheriff for four terms, Keith Cain, will be up for re-election next May, but he, friends, family, and many Owensboro residents were already gearing up for special election season on Wednesday night at Windy Hollow restaurant. 

Ford and other city officials and state legislators were in attendance to support the current sheriff who has been in law enforcement in Daviess County since 1974.

“I go to sleep at night feeling much better because Keith Cain is sheriff, and because he has a good group of people he put together that makes this county one of the safest counties not only in Kentucky, but in the United States,” said Ford.

Cain is the Kentucky Law Enforcement Council Sheriff, and serves on the board of the National and Kentucky Sheriff’s Association. He has received several awards in his four decades in law enforcement including the Silver Star for Bravery by the American Police Hall of Fame.

Cain said he is “comfortable and confident” about his platform in next year’s election.

“A vote for Keith Cain is a vote for the Daviess County Sheriff’s office that serves you today,” said Cain.

Jan. 28, 2014 is the deadline for another person to file for candidacy against Cain. The Daviess County Sheriff will be voted upon May 20.
