TWIN FALLS • Twin Falls County Sheriff Tom Carter will seek another four-year term in office this fall.
Carter, 61, has been sheriff since 2008 when he beat three-term incumbent Wayne Tousley.
In a Tuesday announcement made through Facebook, Carter wrote he feels he has accomplished several goals he made when taking office: making deputies available to schools, increasing the K-9 unit and aggressively battling drugs throughout the county. While doing all that, he wrote, he maintained fiscal responsibility.
In the May primary election Carter, a Republican, will face challenger Jack Johnson, who is currently chief deputy at the Jerome County Sheriff’s Office.
No other candidates have emerged for the office, but filing for the election doesn’t start until Feb. 27. The primary election is May 15.
