Recent news accounts of the upcoming primary for 9th Circuit solicitor covering Charleston and Berkeley counties report that Berkeley County Sheriff Wayne DeWitt has endorsed one candidate and Charleston County Sheriff Al Cannon has endorsed the other.

While these reports are true, it is also true that we believe both candidates to be well qualified and that each will do a fine job as 9th Circuit solicitor.

In no way should our difference in preference suggest that we are any less committed to assisting one another or working together as much as possible to insure that we, with other tri-county law enforcement agencies, make our community safe.

WAYNE DeWITT
Sheriff
Berkeley County

AL CANNON
Sheriff
Charleston County
