Barr Will Not Run for Second Term as Sangamon County Sheriff

It’s one and done for Sangamon County Sheriff Wes Barr. Barr has decided not to seek a second term next year.

He calls it a difficult decision, but says he is looking forward to spending some time traveling with his wife Sherry.

Barr says since taking office in 2014, he has made improvements to the jail, increased the number of deputies in the department, and brought the office in under budget in Fiscal Year 2016.
