To My Fellow Citizens of Scioto County:

It is with much thought, consideration and prayer that I am announcing that I am officially withdrawing as a candidate for Scioto County Sheriff.

I have accepted a new position at Scioto County Common Pleas Court as Chief Probation Officer. This decision was made with much thought as to what was best for my family. This new position will require a lot of my time as I become acclimated to my new responsibilities. I feel that I can make a difference in this new position for our community. I am very honored by the amount of support that I received during my campaign.

I want to thank each and every person who supported me during my campaign and you will forever be in my heart. The friendships I have gained over the last several months means a lot to me and I am forever grateful for your support. I wish both of my opponents the best of luck in the March primary.

God Bless,

Shawn Davis
