Eric Hess Announces Bid for Fluvanna County Sheriff

Posted: Updated:

The man serving as Fluvanna County's interim sheriff wants to make the job permanent. Eric Hess formally announced his bid for sheriff Monday morning in Palmyra.

Previously, Hess served in various law enforcement capacities - most recently as the chief deputy. He was appointed interim sheriff in May after Ryant Washington left to work for Governor Terry McAuliffe's administration.

"I've spent years in career law enforcement. My education - I have a bachelor's in criminal justice, master's in administration of criminal justice and pretty much been a public servant one way or the other most of my life and I think this is like the icing on the cake,” said Hess.

Hess will face Albemarle County police veteran Mark Belew at the polls in November.
