The fourth time was a charm Saturday afternoon for John Ingram.
The 100-plus members of the Democratic Party Executive Committee cast their votes in four different ballots before Ingram secured the necessary 89 votes to be named the party's nominee for sheriff.
Ingram, Brunswick County Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy, beat out Willie Sloan in the fourth and final ballot 94.5 votes to 81 votes.
Now that Ingram has been named the Democratic Party's nominee to be appointed sheriff, Brunswick County Commissioners will vote to appoint Ingram at their May 19 meeting.
