“I am so pleased at this record amount of fundraising and after 35 years as a law enforcement officer in St. Johns County, it is very humbling to receive this kind of validation and job approval,” Shoar said.

In an announcement to Historic City News, Shoar also said that he is very thankful for the wonderful cross section of his contributors. Donations have been reported from local auto mechanics and electricians to Chief Executive Officers of National brand companies.

“I am very passionate about my position as your elected Sheriff and I have never taken this position for granted,” Shoar explained while announcing this fourth-term run. “Because we have been so successful fundraising and meeting our campaign budget requirements in the first 30 days, I will be able to spend the remainder of my campaign on what I enjoy doing most, meeting with and talking with our residents and visitors.”
