Manchester Republicans endorse Cirencione for sheriff in Ontario County

The Town of Manchester Republican Committee has endorsed David Cirencione in this year’s race for Ontario County Sheriff. This week Committee Members heard in-person presentations from both declared candidates and then voted unanimously to endorse Cirencione based on his experience, qualifications and leadership.

Cirencione launched his candidacy for Sheriff last month. A Republican and lifelong resident of Ontario County, he is a 20-year veteran of the Sheriff’s Office and currently serves as Lieutenant, overseeing the Criminal Investigation Division.

“We’re proud to endorse Lt. David Cirencione for Ontario Couty Sheriff in this year’s election,” said Manchester Town Republican Chair Donna Schaertl. “After carefully considering the candidates, our Committee determined that David is the right person for the job. He has our full and unwavering support.”

“I’m honored to have earned this important endorsement from the dedicated members of the Manchester Republican Committee,” said Cirencione. “They volunteer their time and work hard to elect the best possible candidates because they care deeply about Ontario County and ensuring that it remains a safe place to live, work, raise a family and retire.”

Cirencione first joined the Sheriff’s Office in 2002 as a Deputy. Over the years, he was promoted through the ranks to Sergeant in 2007 and eventually his current rank in 2016. As Lieutenant for the past five years, he has served as Commanding Officer for numerous units. He has also helped train our next generation of law enforcement as an Instructor at the Finger Lakes Law Enforcement Academy for the past 16 years.

Aside from his extensive law enforcement background, Cirencione has served as a volunteer firefighter and, before entering a career in law enforcement, served as a Caseworker and Case Supervisor for Child Protective Services.

Cirencione, 46, is a graduate of Geneva High School and SUNY Oswego. He lives in Geneva with his wife of 20 years, Sue, who owns and operates the Ovid Big M supermarket. The couple has three children.
