Former Sheriff Billy Carlisle dropped out of the race for the Dawson County Board of Commissioners District 3 seat on Wednesday, two days after retired fire marshal and emergency services Chief Tim Satterfield declared his intent to run for the same seat. “Right now is not the best time, I don’t feel like I can give it 100 percent of my time,” Carlisle said. “I didn’t see the point in going in there and not giving it 100 percent. If you’re going to do it, do it right.” He wished Satterfield and any other potential candidates luck. Satterfield, a 41-year fire service veteran, retired from Dawson County Emergency Services in December after nearly 13 years of service with the county.
