Cobb Sheriff Winning Another Term

The sheriff’s race was one of only a few contested races in Cobb County.

Cobb Sheriff Winning Another Term

Cobb County Republican Sheriff Neil Warren was winning another term late Tuesday night, seemingly beating Democrat Gregory Gilstrap.

Warren led by almost 60 percent with partial precincts reporting. That's the same percentage that Warren beat Gilstrap in 2008.

The sheriff’s race was one of only a few contested races in Cobb County. Many elections were decided in the primary.

Warren was sworn-in as interim sheriff in December 2003, following the previous sheriff’s resignation. He was first elected as the county’s 42nd sheriff in November 2004.

Warren oversees a department where duties include courthouse security, county jail operations and executing criminal warrants. In 2011, Warren said deputies served more than 24,000 criminal warrants, over 45,000 civil processes including court orders, and transported more than 200 inmates to court daily.


County offices up for election with only one candidate and presumed winner include:

Tax Commissioner – Gail Downing, Republican incumbent

Surveyor – Donald Perryman, Republican incumbent

Chief Magistrate – Frank Cox, Republican incumbent

Clerk of State Court of Cobb County – Diane B. Webb, Republican incumbent; Angie Davis, chief deputy
