Michael Zurlo - Running for Saratoga County Sheriff

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

Zurlo: Keeping our neighborhoods and children in school safe are my top priorities as the next Sheriff. Utilizing and building on our relationships with local police agencies will ensure that our communities remain safe place to live and work and engaging our youth and educators will promote safe initiatives within our classrooms.    

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

I am the only candidate for Saratoga County Sheriff who has the working knowledge and experience of working with all aspects of the Saratoga County Sheriff's Office. In fact, I have more than 30 years’ experience working directly with corrections, communications, road patrol and civil. This experience has led me being the only candidate to be endorsed by the top law enforcement unions including the Saratoga County Deputy Benevolent Association, the New York State Law Enforcement Officers Union-Council 82 and the New York State Deputies Association.  

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

My service as a Town Judge in Stillwater and more than 30 years of policing experience protecting the streets of Saratoga County as a dedicated law-enforcement professional where I proudly served as a Sergeant, Lieutenant and Senior Criminal Investigator separates me from my opponent. My vast experience handling arson, burglary and homicide cases, on top of managing department resources and having a firm understanding all aspects of running the Sheriff's Office makes me the most qualified candidate to become the next Sheriff of Saratoga County
