There’s a new sheriff in town for Bureau County

Posted by wlpo on December 1, 2014

For the first time in over a decade, John Thompson won’t be the sheriff in Bureau County.

Thompson retired and his replacement Jim Reed will be sworn today at the Bureau County Courthouse. The Democrat Reed won last month’s election over Republican Alan Beaber.

Republican Courtney Mabry is also taking over as Bureau County treasurer from Nina Urbanowski who didn’t seek re-election. Mabry beat Democrat Rick Wilkin in last month’s election.
