It has been my distinct honor to serve as your Sheriff for the past twelve years.
As a 34 year member of the Monroe County Sheriff's Office, I've had an extremely rewarding career that has provided me with a deep knowledge of all aspects of law enforcement. As I've worked my way up through the ranks from road patrol deputy through successive management and leadership roles in the Sheriff's Office, I've had a unique opportunity to make a positive difference in our community.
I strongly believe in important values. These include leading with integrity and demonstrating respect for the public trust. Personal responsibility is the key to success and helps us arrive at solutions that are in the best interest of everyone. It is the hallmark of a character-based organization, and it is a standard I expect from every member of your Monroe County Sheriff's Office.
Our 1,200 dedicated employees and hundreds of volunteers will continue to deliver superior public safety services for you and your family. I am exceptionally proud of our deputies, security and corrections professionals, and civilian staff serving to our community.
My commitment to this community is for the Sheriff's office to provide you the citizens of Monroe County with the highest level of service possible. Our members can be proud of where they work and our citizens can be equally proud of their Sheriff's Office. Monroe County deserves the best in law enforcement and, with your support on Election Day, I intend to continue to deliver on that commitment.
The Monroe County Sheriff's Office was established in 1821 at a time of rapid expansion and settlement in western New York.

Together, we can continue that mission.
