WHY IS MICHAEL RUNNING FOR SHERIFF
My name is Michael Antilley, and I am running for Red River Parish Sheriff. For the last 29 years I have been privileged to protect and serve the great people of the state of Louisiana through multiple agencies. This includes the last 20 years focused solely on our own beloved parish of Red River as both a Red River Sheriff’s Department Deputy and a Louisiana State Trooper. I am running for Sheriff because, as Sheriff, I can best serve our community. During my law enforcement career, I have not only served the people of Red River Parish via my patrol responsibilities, but also by lending individuals, families, and neighbors a hand in times of need and mentoring the next generation, our greatest resource, our community’s kids. I have enjoyed the opportunity to serve by interacting with the children and families of our community including supporting the Red River High School Girls’ Basketball Team, driving buses to games, and providing off-duty security at high school events. All of which I love to do. Thus, I feel called to continue and even expand these services and skills in our community through leadership as your sheriff.
As a Christian, a husband, a father of four, and a proud, long-standing member of this community, I am ready to protect and serve the people of Red River Parish and make it a safe place for all our families to live and thrive. As Sheriff, I promise our community that my department WILL keep you informed about situations as they occur, we WILL do our best to ensure that you and your family are protected.
MY OFFICE DOOR WILL ALWAYS BE OPEN, MY CELL PHONE ALWAYS ON, AND I WILL ALWAYS MAKE TIME TO LISTEN.
I truly believe that if you elect me as Red River Parish Sheriff, we can all work together to create a community all residents can be happy about and feel safe in. The job of law enforcement is to protect and serve those in our communities. I can promise, as Sheriff, that is what you will get. Community is also about good communication, and my department will always keep our residents up to date with things that are happening in our communities and parish at large. I want you to remember, you have a voice. If I am elected sheriff, you will have the ability to voice any concerns or questions to myself or a member of my department and be heard. Without hearing from you, how can we ensure that we are protecting and serving you to the best of our abilities? If elected Sheriff, I can guarantee that as a department we are going to be involved in our community and parish. I have plans to make sure we are actively seen, engaged, and lending a helping hand. I thank you for your time and look forward to meeting with you to discuss any questions or concerns you may have.
