The Fight for Alachua County Sheriff is on at The 2008 Democratic Black Caucus
Story By: Brittany Soeder WCJB TV20 News.
Candidates gathered to compete in an open forum for the upcoming primary election. Both candidates for Alachua County Sheriff showed up to voice reasons why they should be elected. Methods on how to stop racial profiling in certain neighborhoods was the main concern for the panel asking the questions. Last year, some Archer residents complained they were targeted by deputies because they were black. Both Darnell and Scott addressed the "reality or perception" portion of the debate, talking about their plans for neighborhoods with crime problems. Candidates said the youth is the future and both did agree that there is much more to be done. Darnell and Scott will be in the Oak Hammock neighborhood to continue that battle for office.
