Bristol, Va. School Board member to run for sheriff


BRISTOL, Va. (WJHL) – A member of the Bristol Virginia School Board is running for sheriff for the City of Bristol, Virginia.

Tyrone Foster announced in a tweet Saturday afternoon his intent to run for the position.

Foster said this decision came after learning a few weeks ago that Sheriff David Maples would be retiring in 2021.

Foster is also a detective with the Bristol, Virginia Police Department.

Foster said he chose not to run in the past against previous administrations due to “personal relationships and professional courtesy.”

Another candidate who announced their intention to run for sheriff includes Charlie Thomas.
