Photos/Video: State Trooper Clee Atkinson Appointed Sheriff Of Edgecombe County


imageEdgecombe County has a new Sheriff in town. Clee Atkinson will serve out the unexpired term of Sheriff James Knight until the election in 2018. The Edgecombe County Board of Commissioners will make the appointment official on Monday April 3 during their regular monthly meeting at 7:00 PM. However I wish the commissioners would call a special meeting just to do the appointment because time is crucial.

 The DCN News Blog Online TV congratulate Sheriff Clee Atkinson and his wife Kim as they enter into the political arena. The Sheriff position is about law enforcement but it is also political so Clee don’t get it twisted. You may not want to be a politician but it comes with the territory so continue to roll up your sleeves and get the getting. Actually you got it right anyway when you campaigned on economics and other because it is all politics and goes hand in hand. I am excited about the experience and the wealth of knowledge and resources you will bring to Edgecombe County. As you have stated on your campaign journey, “Help is on the way!” Well Larry Woodley got it right last night during his speech as a candidate after following your speech when he said, “Help is already here!”
