Cahill emerges victorious in heated sheriff's race


LEWISBURG (WVVA) - Tuesday's election marked the end of a heated race for sheriff in Greenbrier County.

When the votes were counted, challenger Jan Cahill had unseated Sheriff Jim Childers by 1,970 votes.

Results show Cahill -- a former State Police Captain and Marine -- won every precinct in the county.

Cahill said he is satisfied with the victory, but glad the campaign is over. He says he's eager to tackle the drug problem in the county.

Childers was not available for comment Wednesday.
