From Staff Reports 

HENDERSONVILLE — Henderson County Sheriff Lowell Griffin announced on Sept. 22 that he will be running for re-election in 2022.

Griffin said he “is honored and humbled to serve our community as your sheriff” in an email from the Committee to Re-Elect Lowell S. Griffin-Sheriff.

His re-election campaign will be launched — formally — from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 16 at Granddad’s Apples at 2951 Chimney Rock Road, about 4.4 miles east of, or about a seven-minute drive in regular traffic from, Hendersonville.

“After defeating incumbent Sheriff Charlie McDonald in the Republican primary in May 2018, Griffin was the only candidate on the ballot in the Nov. 6, 2018 General Election” in which he tallied 35,910 votes, the Hendersonville Times-News reported on Sept. 24.

The 2022 General Election is set on Nov. 8.

“In a video message announcing his campaign, Griffin said county residents are resilient, having stood side by side through a worldwide pandemic,” the HT-N story noted. “He said he faced one of the worst moments in his life this term when (sheriff’s) Deputy Ryan Hendrix was killed in the line of duty on Sept. 10, 2020.

“The community supports law enforcement, for which he is grateful, Griffin said, adding that there have also been good times during his first term, with several accomplishments to be proud of.

“Henderson County is growing and changing, but it is still one of the best places to live, he added, and he is proud to be a county native,” the HT-N story reported.
