Purdy Schools request bond issue votes for campus FEMA shelter
July 20, 2016
Barry County’s current Sheriff Mick Epperly formally endorsed Republican candidate Terry Meek as his replacement in 2017. He said, “I’ve had a lot of people coming to me asking me if I was going to endorse someone and who I thought it should be. I wanted to listen to the candidates and listen to their views on things, and I believe Terry is the man for the job.”
Meek currently works in the Sheriff’s Department, but he is not the only member of the department running.
Epperly said, “I’ve always been concerned for the county and law enforcement, and I want the public to continue to get good service or maybe better service as far as protecting citizens. Terry has new ideas that he’ll put in place.”
Meek said he was humbled by Epperly’s endorsement. He said, “I was pretty thrilled when he called and let me know about it. I feel honored that he trusted this task to me.”
Purdy Festival fun for the whole family
