After the votes were tallied, Hobe Runion was named the winner of the Sebastian County Sheriff’s race. With no contenders for the General Election in November, Runion will succeed the man who enodorsed him, current sheriff Bill Hollenbeck.
“Friends, I cannot thank you enough for your support, encouragement and hard work, said Runion. “I look forward to meeting you as we live life in our piece of the world, Sebastian County!”
Candidates McFadden and Copeland graciously conceded the race. Copeland stated he was proud of the clean campaign his team ran and respected the decision of the people. McFadden relayed his plans to continue serving wherever he’s lead.
