Sheriff Ingram switches political parties

Body

There was a political change Wednesday for Brunswick County Sheriff John Ingram. Sheriff Ingram has switched his party affiliation from Democrat to Republican.

The Democratic Party recommended Ingram to be Ron Hewett’s replacement in the spring of 2008.

Wednesday, Ingram announced his intent to seek the Republican nomination for sheriff in 2010.

In a statement, Ingram said, “Serving as Sheriff includes leading a team of dedicated and outstanding men and women. I am honored to work with this group of fine officers who strive daily for excellence.

The Sheriff’s office is not about partisan politics, and some may ask why change parties. As I embark upon this season of Thanksgiving, I have had the opportunity to reflect on my life and the opportunities and blessings bestowed upon me. It is after much reflection and contemplation that I have decided to join the Republican Party.

Though my career in law enforcement as a Democrat has brought me to this place in time, it is my humble choice to live free as my conservative principles and discipline desire.
It is my hope and belief that all of the citizens of Brunswick County, Democrat, Republicans and Unafilliated voters will consider my service and re-elect me as their Sheriff.”
