LAWRENCEVILLE -- Sheriff Butch Conway is endorsing challenger Tommy Hunter in Tuesday's GOP runoff for District 3 commissioner.
Hunter faces incumbent Mike Beaudreau, who is seeking his third term on the board.
"Tommy Hunter is a solid conservative who will be responsive to Gwinnett's citizens. I urge you to vote for Tommy on Tuesday," Conway said to voters. "You can make a difference."
Conway, who is unopposed for his fifth term, has been involved in county commission races before. He campaigned for challenger Lorraine Green, when the commissioner mounted an unsuccessful challenge to then-Chairman Charles Bannister in 2008.
Hunter said he was grateful for the support.
"I have always had the greatest respect for Sheriff Conway. He's been a driving force for conservative causes in Gwinnett for many years and earning his support is a great honor for me," Hunter said. "I look forward to serving the citizens of District Three with an open door policy and respect for my constituents that will make all who have given their support to my campaign proud."
