Jackson Announces Re-election Bid

Touting his integrity and accomplishments -along with support from former Atlanta Brave Hank Aaron and former Atlanta Mayor and Ambassador Andrew Young- Fulton County Sheriff Ted Jackson announced his re-election campaign via a press release:

“The department has a long list of accomplishments over the last 10 years. I am especially proud that we were able to get the Federal Consent Decree removed, completed the County Courthouse Command Center and invested heavily in our youth, all while leading with integrity…” said Jackson.

First elected in 2008 Jackson has since led a number of successful reforms, and most recently defeated a field of six challengers, including former Sheriff Richard Lankford, in 2016. 

Reverend Timothy McDonald, Pastor of First Iconium Baptist Church and former President of the Concerned Black Clergy, also endorsed Jackson.

“We are fortunate to have a leader in whom we can trust. He has integrity, experience and the vision to move the Sheriff’s Office ahead. I am proud, very proud, to stand with and support Sheriff Jackson.”

Jackson also announced that his campaign website would be live “in the next few weeks.”
