Genesee County Sheriff's Office (New York) - Elections and Organization

Elections and Organization

Sheriffs in New York State (outside of New York City, Nassau and Westchester Counties) are elected for three or four-year terms, depending on the vote of the county government, specifically the county legislature. This office is unusual in NY state in that a superintendent, rather than a titutlar undersheriff, runs the jail.

The current sheriff is Gary T. Maha and the undersheriff is William A. Sheron, Jr.

Famous quotes containing the words elections and, organization and/or elections:

    Elections and politics in this country correspond with battles and war in other times and countries. Whatever of departing evils remains is sure to show itself last in the excitement of political contests.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    In any great organization it is far, far safer to be wrong with the majority than to be right alone.
    John Kenneth Galbraith (b. 1908)

    In my public statements I have earnestly urged that there rested upon government many responsibilities which affect the moral and spiritual welfare of our people. The participation of women in elections has produced a keener realization of the importance of these questions and has contributed to higher national ideals. Moreover, it is through them that our national ideals are ingrained in our children.
    Herbert Hoover (1874–1964)
