To provide voters with more information about the Douglas County sheriff’s race, the newspaper sent questionnaires to the four candidates.


They include incumbent Sheriff Troy Wolbersen and challengers Rich Homan, Scot Umlauf and Greg Windhurst.

The two top vote-getters in the August 12 primary will be on the ballot for the general election on November 4.

The candidates were asked to limit their responses to the five questions to no more than 500 words.
