It’s Official!

Well folks it’s official. Accompanied by my wife and campaign support staff, I filed for the seat of Robeson County Sheriff and seek the support of the caring law abiding citizens of this county. I promise you a fight to rid this county of the evils that have corroded it for years. I will not stand idly by and allow corruption and intimidation to rule this county at any level. Drugs are killing this county and have affected every race and background of citizens here. I have the proven background and the contacts on speed dial to get the assistance here we need to combat this issue and have the plans in place in my platform to reach out to those that want help. Resources of the state and federal government are ready and willing to come in and work hand in hand with a planned task force. My platform has been public for over a year and I have copied no other candidates messages.

So in saying this, if you feel the need for change in this county and have everyone from our youth to our elderly in your hearts, I need you to step up and stand tall with me. I am not playing any games here by siding with any “Special Interest Groups” in an attempt to win over a certain group of the population to win this election. However I do seek the support of those citizens of ALL races that are as fed up as I am with our county being ranked number one for all the wrong reasons and are ready to take a stand. I stand ready to be YOUR Sheriff and not a Sheriff of a few. No strings attached to this campaign nor any hidden Backdoor supporters. I am an open book and have tolerated all the blatant lies and rumors for over a year now trying to discredit my background but I haven’t backed down. Consider the sources of this information as they have personal agendas, most are felons and many have reasons why they don’t want me in that office.

The time is here as early voting starts in 56 days. Please get out and VOTE and don’t let others tell you or force you to vote their way. Do you own homework on all candidates to include checking their background, training, experience, qualifications, certifications, volunteer service, job knowledge of a Sheriff to include knowledge of the courts, civil process, criminal investigations, drug investigations, human trafficking, Opioid Response and much more. Compare the facts with fiction. In saying this, I humbly ask for your support as YOUR next Sheriff of Robeson County as I promise a new day and image we all can be proud of.

Thank you all.…/wilkins-becomes-third-to-seek-s…

From Burnis:

For clarification of a couple rumors I was asked about today by some concerned voting citizens of the west side of Robeson County that suggested I put this post out:

1. I left the Robeson County Sheriffs Office in 1992 after serving as the Chief of Detectives to accept employment with the NC Department of Crime Control & Public Safety, a position I held until late 2002. I was stationed in Wilmington, sold my home in Littlefield area and moved to Wilmington and later to the beach at Surf City. I came back to Lumberton PD after 10 years with the DCCPS. I was not living in Robeson County and I did NOT work under the then Glenn Maynor administration nor was I part of the Tarnish Badge Investigation. I was NOT investigated during this nor was I here.
2. I have NEVER been investigated or suspected of any crime during my 36 years of sworn service.
3. I am running a qualification based campaign and have not directed anyone to dig up dirt or do videos on other candidates or their campaign staff. I am a trained investigator and could do it myself and would certainly not have an issue alerting the public of my findings. However again, we are running a clean qualification based campaign without the assistance of any “special interest groups”. I have said many times for the voting public to do their own homework on ALL candidates including myself and check out the rumors you hear. Most information you may be hearing is public record and can be found by simply asking for it and/or researching it on the internet or the courthouse.

Sadly rumors will continue to be spread by a certain few that are working wholeheartedly against my efforts to clean this county up which would possibly involve those very few people. I have been as open as possible and have answered every question asked. My integrity as a Sworn law enforcement officer has NEVER been questioned in any state or federal court. I am still a Sworn Law Enforcement Officer even after retirement and have forged relationships within all levels of government and have their backing if elected as your Sheriff. To the honest good citizens of Robeson County, I stand ready to serve you to the best of my ability to rid this county of Crime & Grime. Thank you.
