U.S. Marshal enters Sheriff's race

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Before now the search for a new sheriff was unofficial. On Tuesday, it became official when Lubbock County Sheriff David Gutierrez handed in his letter of resignation to the judge Tuesday and the job opening was posted.

Those applying for the Sheriff position so far are former Major, Deputy Don Carter, Chief Deputy Kelly Rowe, Director of Animal Services Kevin Overstreet, and U.S. Marshal Ronnie O'Neal.

"One of the main ways the county could benefit from me is my experience with jail contracting and housing of federal prisoners. I know that's a big topic, and we've got a very expensive jail that's going to open before too long. What's not taken up by Lubbock County prisoners, those beds should be utilized to the maximum full extent by paying customers," says O'Neal.

O'Neal has been a U.S. Marshal for 26 years and says that means he's worked with a lot of other Lubbock agencies including the F.B.I. and Lubbock Police.
