Warren Buffett's son staying as Illinois sheriff stint ends

Posted: Updated:

DECATUR, Ill. (AP) - The son of billionaire investor Warren Buffett says he'll remain committed to his central Illinois community after his unlikely term as the local sheriff.

The (Decatur) Herald and Review reports that Howard Buffett was a longtime volunteer with the Macon County Sheriff's Office before the wealthy philanthropist, author, photographer and farmer was appointed in late 2017 to fill the vacant post.

Buffett's term ended Nov. 30, but he says he has no plans to leave Decatur and will continue advancing his Decatur-based foundation, which has donated about $100 million to local projects since he moved to the city in 1992.

Warren Buffett tells the newspaper that his son cares about Decatur, has a strong work ethic and a desire to give back.
