New Hanover Co. Sheriff Republican candidates differ on violence solutions

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The debate Tuesday between Republicans vying for New Hanover County Sheriff was much more civil than the one between the Democrats.

Jason Vaughn and Marc Benson differed slightly on most topics WWAY’s political editor Kevin Wuzzardo asked them about. But, when it comes to preventing youth violence, there is a noticeable divide.

“A large part of the county’s tax budget is associated with law enforcement and emergency-related services. We do need to expand our school resource officer unit,” Vaughn said. “We do need to be in the communities. We don’t need to continue to have an us versus them mentality.”

But, Benson doesn’t fully agree.

“To try and figure out the psyche of a child and try and figure out where they’re supposed to be after school, that is not the sheriff’s responsibility,” Benson said. “Their responsibility is to protect him from the bad guys or protect the child from the bad guys for us to mix roles and I think that’s where the problem has come.”
