Buckley dominates Union Parish race
Buckley received 5,413 votes, or 64 percent, to Smith’s 3,096, 36 percent.
It was the widest margin of victory in a Union Parish sheriff’s race in 20 years, according to election records.
“It’s a great feeling to win big,” Buckley said. “But it is also encouraging and humbling. It says the people approve of what we’ve been doing for 12 years, and that they trust us.”
