Newport – Campbell County Sheriff Jeff Kidwell has filed to run for re-election.
Kidwell also announced that his campaign will be managed by US Senator Jim Bunning (Retired) of Southgate.
“I am so proud that Jim has agreed to come out of retirement to manage my re-election campaign. I don’t think I could find a better mentor, political strategist and friend than Jim Bunning. I will make good use of his knowledge and work ethic for the people of Campbell County.”
Kidwell implemented many changes and improvements and believes this progress will ensure his ability to retain the office. Kidwell received a citation in 2013 from the Kentucky House of Representatives for his work in the Sheriff’s Office.
“Being the first Republican to hold the office of Sheriff in Campbell County in forty years, and because of all the streamlining, modernization and other improvements on both the fiscal and law enforcement segments, I hope that the citizens of Campbell County will allow me to continue my work” said Sheriff Kidwell in a statement.
