Another Republican in race for sheriff

Retired State Police Sgt. and Greenfield Republican Jack Sadousky is the latest candidate for sheriff in Saratoga County.

The retirement of long-time Sheriff Jim Bowen has created an wide open race, at least in the Republican Primary. Candidates so far include Republican Michael Zurlo and Conservative Phil Lindsey.

No Democratic candidates have yet to emerge.

According to a news release, Sadousky lives in Porters Corners and served the state police for more than 20 years. In 2004 he was appointed the executive officer for the state park police in the Capital Region.

“I am pleased to announce that I am seeking the nomination for Saratoga County Sheriff,” said Sadousky in a statement. “Our county has one of the finest sheriff departments in the state, and I believe that my many years of leadership and experience in law enforcement and investigation will continue to enhance its services to the residents of Saratoga County.”

His career in law enforcement began as a military policeman in the U.S. Army in 1981. During his career he amassed the Medal of Valor and a Medal of Merit from the New York State Park Police, a DWI Enforcement Award and a Certificate of Exception Valor in connection with the chase for a dangerous suspect.

He has been endorsed by the Greenfield Republican Committee.

If there is a Republican Primary it would be in September. The Saratoga County Republican Committee has not yet made an endorsement in this race.
