TELL CITY – By an 11 to 6 vote, Perry County Democratic precinct committee members chose Alan Malone Thursday to become Perry County’s new sheriff. Malone hugged Sheriff’s Deputy Richard Myers and thanked the group for its support during a process that lasted less than an hour.
“I’m excited, a little bit nervous, but excited,” he said. “This is something I’ve been interested in for several years. I’ll work very hard to be the best sheriff possible.”
