Adams County Sheriff Patten wins second term

NATCHEZ — Travis Patten handily won a second term as Adams County Sheriff in Tuesday’s General election.

Pattens’ friends, family members and supporters gathered in a banquet hall at the Magnolia Bluffs Casino Hotel Tuesday night.

“I’ve got to give Adam Kirk credit,” Patten told the crowd of his main opponent in the race. “He was the first guy to call and congratulate me on the victory.”

Patten beat Kirk 6,983 votes, or 71.9% of the vote to Kirk’s 2,389 votes, or 14.6% of the vote. A third candidate Brian Seyfarth got 340 votes, or 3.5% of the vote.

Both Kirk and Seyfarth ran as independents and Patten is a Democrat.

Patten said he admires Kirk who ran a clean race.

“I told Adam even though the race is over, we have a lot more work to do in this community,” Patten said. “He agreed.”

Patten thanked his family, including his daughter, Makala, whose 15th birthday was Tuesday, and his extended family of the Adams County Sheriff’s Office employees.

“So many of y’all kept the Team Patten from going in the ditches,” Patten said. “You don’t know what made of until you’re tested. You’ve all been truly battle tested and you’ve come out smelling like gold roses.”

Patten also thanked the voters and his campaign manager Natalie Reades.
