Anniston Star readers chose Calhoun County Sheriff Matthew Wade as their favorite public official this year, a decision that leaves Wade grateful and humbled. 

“It’s kind of hard to believe,” Wade said, seated at a desk in his office. The sheriff’s various certifications and diplomas hung on the wall behind him, accumulated over a law enforcement career more than two decades long. “I’m very thankful for their vote of confidence, and I’ll do my best not to let ’em down.”
