To All Ontario County Residents,
We, the undersigned road patrol deputy sheriff's would like to express our appreciation to the residents of Ontario County for asking us who is most qualified to be our next sheriff. Altogether, the 30 of us have a combined 455 years of experience patrolling the highways of Ontario County, answering calls for service and protecting our neighborhoods.
For 28 years we have had the same sheriff as our boss. In the recent weeks, we have followed the campaigns of both sheriff candidates.
We would like to extend our support to Kevin Henderson for taking the high road during his run for sheriff, and not engaging in a negative campaign, regardless of what his opponent has mailed out, sent via email, or posted online. That speaks to the character of Kevin Henderson and is representative of the type of attitude we all need to have while engaged in our jobs as law enforcement officer’s in Ontario County.
Most of you will recognize one or more of our names, as we have served Ontario County as law enforcement officers for many years. Many of you will also know us as part of the communities we live in on a daily basis.
For those of you who are undecided about who to vote for in the race for Ontario County sheriff, we would ask you to do three things:
First, the next time you’re out and about start taking notice of the campaign signs that are on private property and not on a public right of way. Those signs represent individuals who have given Kevin Henderson permission to have a sign on their property.
Second, of those signs that are on private property supporting Kevin Henderson, take notice of how many of them also have a sheriff’s car in the driveway.
Third, to revive a meaningful campaign slogan that Sheriff Phil Povero used in his first run for Ontario County Sheriff some 27 years ago, “ASK A COP.” We are confident that when you ask, you will receive a quick response - Kevin Henderson!
Please join us in our support and help elect Kevin Henderson as the next sheriff of Ontario County on November 6th.
