The Onondaga County Sheriff position is up for grabs for the first time since 1994. Longtime Sheriff Kevin Walsh is stepping down after twenty years. DeWitt Police Chief and Republican candidate Gene Conway will run against Democrat and veteran of the Onondaga Sheriff's office Toby Shelley. The department has recently dealt with a number of issues including over-time costs and allegations of officers filling out false time sheets. First-time candidate Conway is not happy with the negative image the local police and Sheriff's office has developed over the past few years.

John Balloni confirmed Monday what many already suspected…that he’s running for Onondaga County Sheriff.  He’s been raising money for months, and retiring Sheriff Kevin Walsh has publicly supported Balloni as his successor.   He told a crowd of about 50 supporters yesterday that in an age of tight budgets and sparse manpower, he wants more partnerships with local police agencies to boost community policing.  But he stopped short of a full endorsement of consolidation.

Another missing piece to the puzzle of who’s running for Onondaga County Sheriff this year became clearer today. Sheriff Kevin Walsh’s longstanding career for the county’s top law enforcement job has spanned 20 years and he was also on the force for another 20 years prior. Walsh threw a bit of a curveball when he first said that he wasn’t retiring and discussed his many teaching jobs in law enforcement that he intends to continue.  However, what about his current job?
