Chris Winningham Is Candidate for Sheriff

Chris Winningham has announced that he will be a candidate for Sheriff in the upcoming August Election, and issued the following statement:

“To the People of Fentress County, I would like to introduce myself.

My name is Chris Winningham, and I would like to be your Sheriff.

I have been in Law Enforcement for 30 plus years, and it all started right here in Fentress County.  In 1987 I went to work for the Jamestown Police Department.  There I worked alsongside such honorable men as the late Perry Stockton and Wendell Reagan, and also former Sheriff Ray Atkinson.

I finished my career with the Oak Ridge Police Department, retiring in 2016.  Almost all my family still lives in Fentress County and I visited regularly.  I moved back to Fentress County in 2010.

If elected as your Sheriff, I will continue to take a common sense approach to law enforcement, and bring back Integrity and Pride to the Fentress County Sheriff’s Office.

Thank you for your time and consideration”
