My Vision As Your County Councilman
"I Larry Abraham will be your voice for Dillon County Council District 2"
I want to say a few words about what I have done over the past twelve years as your Chief Deputy. Sheriff Major Hulon became sheriff in January 2009, at a time when Dillon County was at its lowest. There were drug dealers on every block, prostitutes on corner and corrupt police officers within the sheriff department, and clubs on every block staying open all night, making noise disturbing our senior citizens to include on Sundays. No businesses wanted to locate in Dillon because of the crime rate and corrupted law enforcement in the county. Under the directions of Sheriff Major Hulon I, as Chief Deputy took the lead in cleaning up Dillon County Sheriff department and making the county safe for the residents. Under the guidance of the sheriff, I am proud of the work I did in trying to take care of the citizens of Dillon County. Lake View asked for help cleaning up the crime on the Hill Top, and I was glad to assist them in making it a safe place for our children and seniors. I see great things for District 2, but the right person must be on council to get it done. It is time for us to elect qualified individuals to do the job for the citizens. I Don't wont you to support me just because you like me, support me because you know I can and will do the job for you and the citizens. This is not just pertaining to Larry Abraham but any person you give your support and vote to represent you. I need your support because I know that I can get the job done. You may not know that many business came to Dillon County over the past 12 years because of the outstanding job Major Hulon did as your sheriff. I have enjoyed working as Chief Deputy under Sheriff Hulon, and because of the work he allowed me to do as his chief deputy has made Dillon a safer place for our citizens to live. Dillon County Citizens have asked me why would I leave a good paying job at the sheriff's department and run for county council. I tell them it is not about the money it is about using the skills I attained over the many years in the military and local government for the betterment of the citizens of Dillon County.
