Looks like a new sheriff might be coming to town.
Hall of famer Shaquille has announced to Julie Wolfe of WXIA in Atlanta, that he will run for sheriff in 2020.
“This is not about politics,” he said. “It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do. This is about bringing people closer together. You know, when I was coming up, people love and respected the police, the deputies. And, I want to be the one to bring that back, especially in the community that I serve.”
Shaq has no law enforcement experience he has a plan to ensure he’ll excel if elected, according to Wolfe:
“I know how to run a team. My style is going to be to surround myself with guys who have been doing it way longer than I’ve been doing it. Surround myself with smarter people.”
Shaq is a resident of both Georgia and Florida, and he is an honorary deputy in Georgia’s Clayton County, therefore he will be eligible to run in either Georgia or Florida.
This is an election we can’t wait to see.
