Bristol Town Supervisor Bob Green has decided not to run for Ontario County Sheriff this year.
In an email to FingerLakes1.com 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.
