TIFFIN — Fred Stevens, current chief of the Tiffin Police Department and candidate for the top job at the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office, announced Friday that he will appoint Detective Chuck Boyer, unit coordinator of Seneca County Drug Task Force (METRICH), as his chief deputy if elected.
“Chuck Boyer will be a great asset to Seneca County Sheriff’s Office serving as Chief Deputy under my leadership as Sheriff. His leadership skills, knowledge, education, training and passion for this community will flourish in this role and I am looking forward to working with him,” Stevens said.
Stevens said he is committed to community, professionalism, fiscal responsibility, quality of life issues, and accessibility. “Seneca County is a big county and needs and deserves the best person for the Office of Sheriff,” Stevens’ campaign website reads.
Current Seneca County Sheriff Bill Eckelberry had submitted petitions to run for re-election, but withdrew them before last week’s candidate filing deadline. In addition to Stevens, two other candidates, David Pahl and Matt Huffman, will appear on the Republican primary ballot in March 2020.
