Robert Pickenpaugh Withdraws from Noble County Sheriff’s Race

Former Noble County Sheriff and candidate for the office of sheriff, Robert Pickenpaugh, slated to run for re-election in the March primary against Noble County Sheriff Jason Mackie, has announced his withdrawal from the race. He did so in a public letter on his candidate Facebook page Friday. Below is the letter he posted:

To the residents of Noble County

Last summer several people came to me and asked me to run for Sheriff. I pondered on it for a while and decided to give it a go.

With much consideration and thought I have decided to withdraw my candidacy for Sheriff. This decision was a very difficult one to make, as I have served Noble County since I was 18 in some fashion. At the end of the day one has to do what is best for his family and himself.

I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming support, it has been a very humbling experience.

Again Thank You!

Sincerely, Robert Pickenpaugh
