Tuesday’s Primary will narrow the field to two candidates.

Experience is what the Pasco County Sheriff hopeful says he brings to the table.
Not everyone gets to live out a dream, let alone two. But that’s exactly what Pasco County Sheriff candidate Maurice Radford says he’s been able to do with his life. The 25-year law enforcement veteran is running for the office currently held by Chris Nocco. Radford, 50, served alongside Nocco before he was appointed sheriff by Gov. Rick Scott last year. He also served under him following that appointment until Radford decided to retire last September. Radford had been with the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office since 2001 when former Sheriff Bob White asked him to join the ranks as a major. He was the commander over the patrol division throughout White’s tenure. That is, until Radford tendered his resignation last year. About that resignation…

The field now stands at six for the job currently held by Chris Nocco.
When Pasco County Sheriff’s Maj. Maurice Radford abruptly retired in September, his future plans were unclear. That’s not the case any longer. Radford, a Republican, has filed paperwork with the Pasco County Supervisor of Elections Office, announcing his intention to run for sheriff. The Wesley Chapel resident was one of Sheriff Chris Nocco’s top commanders until he announced his retirement in September.
