Pell To Run For Boone County Sheriff

A current Boone County Sheriff’s Deputy is throwing his hat in the ring to be the next sheriff. Scott Pell has been with the department for over 30 years and believes it’s time to take the department in a new direction. 55-year-old Pell filed his paperwork to declare his candidacy Jan. 5 for the May 3 primary. So far, the only other candidate in the Republican primary is Chief Deputy with the sheriff’s department Tony Harris. Pell said his goals include recruiting great employees, providing top-notch training and offering the best pay and benefits.
