Green withdraws from Ontario County Sheriff race

Bristol Town Supervisor Bob Green has decided not to run for Ontario County Sheriff this year.

In an email to Monday, Green said “Linda, I and family wish to warmly thank the many offers of support from members of the Republican, Democrat, and Conservative parties.  We were most honored to have received those offers from so many people. After reviewing the window of requirement and changes for this year’s primary process ( along with the minimum of 1000 signatures),  I am withdrawing consideration for the Office of Sheriff. It has been an honor to have served the residents of the County as a member of the dept. for 30 + years and will continue to do so in other capacities.

To add to this, current deteriorating world events may unfold to have an immediate impact on our family members that are in the service. As grandparents, we will be called upon to help with the care of our grandchildren. Many thanks to everyone – we wish the best to the candidates.”

Green was a candidate in 2020 when Kevin Henderson was elected, following the retirement of Phil Povero. Henderson resigned in September, 2021 amid allegations of misconduct.
