A large crowd at an election night event held at a home near Onancock included nearly all the sheriff's office employees who were not on duty, along with family, friends and a number of county department heads.
"Accomack County, Todd Godwin will be your new sheriff," Morrison said, calling Godwin to the microphone.
He thanked his family for their support and also singled out Jeanette Edwards and John Custis for their help with the campaign.
"We have got the greatest bunch of guys any Sheriff's Office can have," he said.
He said the election results confirmed county residents' good opinion of the sheriff's office.
"It shows that the citizens of Accomack County are confident in our Sheriff's Office," he said.
