Jim Matthews Web
Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews announces he will not run for a third term in 2018 in a video posted to Facebook on Wednesday afternoon. Matthews, 66, said an as yet unnamed, younger officer within his department has indicated he would like to serve as sheriff. Instead of running again, Matthews said he would fully support that officers campaign.
“Hello, I’m Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews.” Matthews used those words to open a more than 3 and 1/2-minute long video posted to Facebook on Wednesday afternoon to announce that he will not seek a third term as Kershaw County’s sheriff. Most of the message recounted various accomplishments the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) has made since taking office in January 2011.
