(Wayne County, IN)--The absence of any filing by a Democrat this week means that Republican Randy Retter will become Wayne County’s next sheriff when Jeff Cappa’s term comes to a close. Retter’s appointment as sheriff was essentially a foregone conclusion after the May primary. But, this week, it became official that he will face no opposition in the general election in November. Retter’s term will begin the first of next year. He will continue to serve as a lieutenant and commander of the Sheriff Office’s Enforcement Division until then.
