Three men are running to be the next Seneca County Sheriff.
Current Sheriff William Eckelberry planned to run for re-election, but withdrew his petitions at the last minute amid a lawsuit against himself, the Seneca County Board of Commissioners, and four corrections officers at the Seneca County Jail.
The following candidates for sheriff will appear on the Republican primary ballot in March:
Former Deputy, Seneca County Sheriff’s Office
“After 28 years of dedicated service in law enforcement as a road deputy and a police officer including experience in corrections, I’m asking for your support in the days to come. If elected, I have plans to bring much needed changes to the county that will not only benefit you the citizens but also the men and women working with me. Thank you for your support and looking forward to your vote in the Primary Election on March 17, 2020.”
Captain, Seneca County Sheriff’s Office
“Nearly 20 years of committed service to Seneca County. Currently a Captain and second in charge of the Sheriff’s Office I’m looking to continue my devotion and dedication to the citizens of Seneca County.”
Chief, Tiffin Police Department
“Like the 5 points of a Sheriff’s badge, I have 5 points that will best explain what I commit to do once elected Seneca County Sheriff in 2020.”
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 said.
