Amato seeking re-election as sheriff

FONDA – Montgomery County Sheriff Michael J. Amato announced he will run for re-election this fall.

“I’m starting my 17th year as sheriff and I have the same desire as I had in 1997 to provide for a safe community and professional sheriff’s office,” Amato said in a news release. “With my current 35 years of service with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, I know I have the knowledge and desire to continue being an asset to the county. If I am afforded the privilege again, I would be honored.”

In the release, Amato said he again received the Republican and Conservative parties’ endorsements.
