Jeff Gildersleeve - Running for Sheriff of Saratoga County

By | News

Q: What is the most pressing issue in Saratoga County that the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office need to address?

Gildersleeve: Bringing the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Department into the 21st Century with technological and cost-effective upgrades to more efficiently serve the public safety of Saratoga County. That would also entail creating department emails, establishing a user-friendly website, utilizing video arraignments and fighting welfare fraud. It’s also important that we stop the rise in drug use within the county and work to educate our youth on the dangers of drugs. That’s why I’ve announced I will bring back an updated DARE program for our kids in Saratoga County schools.

Q: What makes you qualified to lead a multimillion-dollar department with several hundred employees?

Gildersleeve: The diversified experience I’ve earned working for a multitude of well-respected organizations, from my beginnings as a United States Marine to today as a Warren County Sheriff’s investigator and everything in between. I’ve learned firsthand the best and most effective ways to manage a department and will be fiscally responsible with taxpayer dollars while planning long-term for the future.

Q: What is the biggest thing between you and your opponent?

Gildersleeve: My leadership abilities; being the most qualified and experienced Republican candidate running for Saratoga County Sheriff, as a United States Marine, retired New York State Trooper, DEA Drug Task Force Supervisor and current investigator with the Warren County Sheriff’s Office. This diversified experience will allow for an effective administration as the Saratoga County Sheriff with new perspectives on how to upgrade and improve the Sheriff’s office.
