Clark County Sheriff to Announce Re-Election Bid

Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo will be running for re-election next year.

Campaign consultant Jim Ferrence told the Review-Journal a formal announcement will be made today.

Lombardo was elected to the county’s top cop spot in 2014 after overcoming a crowded primary, then ran a tough campaign to win the general election against retired Capt. Larry Burns. Lombardo raised nearly $1 million for his campaign after garnering the support of the resort industry, and he won with 51 percent of the vote.

He’s been a Metro officer for about 30 years years and previously ran the department’s homeland security, search-and-rescue and patrol divisions.
