To the residents of Ontario County

June 14th, 2018

As you are aware, the petition season is upon us and has started. As a Republican candidate for the Office of Sheriff, I am asking for your assistance in passing my respective petition as you seek signatures. Our time, patience and hard work in this process of passing petitions is greatly appreciated.

I have 30 years of experience in the Sheriff’s Office working in every division of the department. My background includes building programs, budgeting, supervision, and administration within the Sheriff’s Office. Please consider the following:

  • As current chairman of the Public Safety Committee, I have been actively involved in reducing inmate population while concurrently seeking best practices for drug addiction treatment,
  • Continued support for our School Resource Officers (SRO) in our public schools,
  • As your Sheriff, will seek new community programs while continuing support for the current drug court and veteran’s court

As a prior senior law enforcement instructor for the Office of Homeland Security, I understand the value of up to date training for all of our personnel. As a recognized regional speaker on Weapons of Mass Destruction, I understand the value of developing relationships with other disciplines of public safety – Fire, EMS and Homeland Security. I continue to instruct for the Finger Lakes law Enforcement Academy and maintain all certifications with the Bureau for Municipal Police in Albany.

Lastly, I take pride in not embellishing my credentials. They are real, time proven and demonstrate leadership.

I look forward to hearing from you and your help in passing petitions for me.

Feel free to contact me at or (585-229-5244)

Thank you for all that you do!

As Chairman of the Ontario County Public Safety Committee, I wish to extend a genuine note of gratitude to all of our emergency services members for their dedication and service to our communities. Law Enforcement, Emergency Medical Services, Fire and Homeland Security agencies work collaboratively to ensure the safety of our homes and families on a daily basis.

Lt. Green certainly has every right to be proud of his outstanding legacy, as generations of law enforcement officials follow his example as a professional and protector of citizens, whom he has faithfully served.

I was genuinely humbled to have received this competition award from the MCL Detachment - Elmira NY last evening. I have been an Associate Member of the Detachment and represented it during their competition matches in the Fall of 2017 (as well as other matches). The scores were tallied against other detachments from other states with mine coming in its respective division. It was a well disciplined match in a very well organized atmosphere. Thank-you to the detachment for allowing me to represent you as an Associate Member. Very, very honored.
