Sheriff candidates getting early start

DANVILLE — There are already four people who have thrown their hats into the ring to run for Hendricks County sheriff in 2014. Brett Clark and Ty VanWagner have each created a candidate’s principal committee and Steven Wagner and John Hancock have each set up exploratory committees to run for the office.

These candidates will be running for the Republican spot in the May 6, 2014, Primary Election.

“If you win as a Republican in Hendricks County, you have a pretty good chance in the General Election,” Clark said.

He said he’s been preparing to run for sheriff for 24 years.

“We started thinking about this when I joined the sheriff’s department 24 years ago,” Clark said. “I started in the jail division in 1989.”

 He said he’s been meeting with advisors and talking with friends and family.

“We want to do good things in the community,” Clark said.

He and his wife, Karie, have an Avon address and their children attend Danville schools.

“I was a Tri-West Bruin myself, as a kid growing up in North Salem,” he said. “I’ve already gotten some positive feedback about running. We’re going to be very positive and just hope for the best.”

Wagner is currently the chief deputy for the department under the leadership of Sheriff David Galloway. He has also been with the department for 24 years. Prior to his career with the sheriff’s department he served as a reserve officer with the Brownsburg Police Department.

“I’ve wanted to be a police officer since I was 6 years old and have never deviated,” Wagner said. “I want to lead a highly trained professional department dedicated to the safety of the community.”

He said he would like to continue the work of the current administration and make sure Hendricks County is as inhospitable to the criminal element as possible.
