Chemung County Sheriff Christopher Moss recently administered the oath of office to Thomas J. Santulli, who was elected as President of the New York State Association of Counties. Mr. Santulli, the Chemung County Executive, will work with Sheriff Moss and all other Sheriffs as we strive to meet our law enforcement responsibilities in the tough economic times that we all face.
Sheriff Moss, who also serves as the Treasurer of the New York State Sheriffs' Association, is the second Sheriff in the last two years to administer the oath of office to the NYSAC President. Last year, Yates County Sheriff Ron Spike gave the oath to Sarah Purdy, who also serves as the County Administrator in Yates County. Sheriff Spike also serves as the Chairman of the Board of the New York State Sheriffs' Association Institute, and is Chairman of NYSAC's Public Safety Committee. Sheriffs have developed a close working relationship with other county leaders, and often participate with NYSAC and others to make sure that all of our citizens receive the finest public protection services that we can provide.
