Durham Sheriff Worth Hill, a Democrat incumbent who is up for re-election in November, declined an invitation from the Independent Weekly Thursday to participate in a debate in one of the county's most important down-ballot races this fall.

When contacted this week, Republican sheriff candidate Roy Taylor, agreed to participate and work around Hill's schedule. But Hill's secretary told the Indy that he wasn't interested.

The Indy is organizing debates in several races, with details to be announced in the coming weeks.

Hill is seeking his fifth term in office. He prevailed in a Democratic primary in May against opponent Tony Butler. The Indy endorsed Hill in that race.
