"As Sheriff I will strive to inspire people to do good things by setting the example. "
With a degree in Police Administration, I am an educated professional. I have sixteen years of experience ranging from patrol to investigations, and currently, management. As Sheriff, I strive to inspire people to do good things by setting the example. I take pride in my family and believe that family comes first. I am the youngest of eight children. My mother was Frances Coomes Mattingly or "Frankie" as she was called at the old bowling alley on Stephen Foster Avenue. My father was the late Sim A. Mattingly or "Simmie" to many people and a proud World War II veteran. Some of you may know my siblings from the oldest to youngest: Jane, Julie, Joan, Sim, Currin, Jill, and Lee. In this picture is my wife, Amy Cundiff Mattingly, a teacher at Bloomfield Elementary School, along with our two sons, Jake and AJ. At work I consider my squad to be my family, and as Sheriff, the entire department is family. It is my goal for the department to value and respect the people in the community we serve.
