YORKVILLE - Oneida County Sheriff Rob Maciol has officially announced his bid for re-election.
In a news conference at Club Monarch Tuesday afternoon, Maciol credited his administration for his success serving Oneida County.
Maciol has held the position since 2011. Prior to becoming sheriff, he served as a police officer in New York Mills and Whitesboro.
The sheriff says his primary reason for wishing to continue is to provide positive impacts in people's lives.
“As the sheriff, obviously I'm not on the front lines, but it's my role to make sure my people have the equipment they need, the resources they need, they have all the things they need to do their jobs… also it's priority of mine - and we've done it too - bridging the relationships between all the law enforcement agencies,” said Maciol.
The position has a four-year term. At this point, no one has come forward to challenge Maciol in the November election. He ran opposed in 2014.
