Vote Steve Sikes

Honor, Integrity, Faith... strong words that define a man


My name is Steve Sikes and I am humbly asking you to consider me as your candidate for Sheriff of Liberty County. I have been married to Dean Sikes for 42 years and we have three children and eight grandchildren. My wife and I were born and raised in Liberty County and chose to raise our children here. Two of my three children and their families also call Liberty County their home.


I come from a long line of lawmen dating back to 1937 when my grandfather, Paul Sikes, was first elected Sheriff of Liberty County and served the citizens of Liberty County for 22 years. My father, Bobby Sikes, was first elected Sheriff of Liberty County in 1960 and served the citizens of Liberty County for a total of 28 years and then yielded the Office of Sheriff to the late Don Martin. I grew up at the feet of these men and witnessed how they carried out their official duties.


I have owned and operated a business in Liberty County for 40 years, served on the administrative and financial board of my Church for the last 20 years and served on the administrative and financial board of John 3:16 Ministries for the last 18 years. In those capacities, I have gained valuable experience as an administrator. I believe my administrative experience along with my law enforcement heritage will translate well into the Office of Sheriff which is the business of meeting the law enforcement needs of the citizens of Liberty County.


I believe that to be successful the Sheriff and the Sheriff's Office need to have a direct and strong connection with the citizens of Liberty County. I understand that it is the law enforcement needs of the citizens that the Sheriff is elected to meet.


As a Liberty County native, I know many of the citizens I seek to represent; however, I look forward to personally meeting and getting to know as many more Liberty County citizens as possible in the coming months. I hope that you will join me in my effort to make Liberty County a safer place to live and raise our families.
