On June 18, 2010 Governor Riley illegally appointed a person from another county to serve as Sheriff of Greene County, disregarding the interim sheriff, the newly, elected sheriff, former sheriffs who reside within Greene County and qualified residents of Greene County. This blatant disrespect will not be accepted. We need your support. We, the undersigned, are concerned citizens who are pleading with the Governor of Alabama to appoint a resident of Greene County or the newly elected sheriff, Joe Benison to serve as Sheriff of Greene County. Joe Benison won the sheriff’s race in the June 1, 2010 Democratic Primary by over 75% and is unopposed in the general election.
